BRAINBLOODVOLUME is a short film based on the bizarre real-life experiment of Dutch librarian and medical student, Hugo Bart Huges. Set as a stylistic interpretation of events, the film follows his search for supreme enlightenment, the ultimate high – by way of the ancient art of trepanation.

Intriguing from the first shot and disturbingly fascinating. I cannot get it out of my head.
— J. Angie Johnson
Beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, visceral, and tense. Abstract and nonliteral, this film explores the plunge into obsession and self-mutilation without the didacticism and stale tropes which plague the mad scientist narrative.
— Nicholas Hauman
What a wonderfully creepy and terrifying film. The stylized look and camera work are amazing! This blew me away.
— Lars Johnson
