Part of the BFI and BBC scheme for young film makers - Janitor of Lunacy was part of the Born Digital series celebrating 30 years of the internet. Premiered at the BFI Southbank and aired on BBC4.

A young woman descends into a digital wormhole via her obsession with a BDSM account run by an unknown user. The film examines social media’s ability to behave organically while also distorting subjective reality.
