FILM/ TV

[ English ]

Regisseur en editor van documentaires en korte films.

Veel werk documentair en essayistisch; maar ook fictie. Terugkerend thema is het spanningsveld tussen de alledaagse werkelijkheid en het interne theater van de mens.

In 2009 toerde mijn eerste lange documentaire film Calling E.T. (NPO) in de Best of IDFA on tour van Cinema Delicatessen. De film is een filosofisch gedachte-experiment en gaat over de wetenschappelijke zoektocht naar onze galactische buren. De film vraagt zich af of wij ons als een aarde moeten presenteren als het onwaarschijnelijke zich voordoet.
