Prosper de Roos (documentary maker and philosopher) mixes disciplines. He teaches, writes and produces features for podcast, festivals, film and cross media. Prosper explores stories at the intersection of man, society, nature and philosophy.
A recurring theme in his work is the ever-shifting boundary between human and non-human. The tortuous affair of man, nature and technology. Connected to this lumpy knot are stories and ideals that influence how we perceive the world. Narratives and ideologies give meaning, encourage and mislead.
Prosper gives workshops, lectures and walks philosophical walks. He furthermore supervises and advises on (media) projects.
