Martin Rosen

He directed two animation movies, Watership Down in 1978 and The Plague Dogs in 1982, both adapted from the novels of Richard Adams, with his production company Nepenthe Productions. Those features will be released for the time in France in 2012. Martin Rosen went into the theatrical production and traditional cinema, without success.
