What motivates people to make certain choices? And how do these choices reflect the world they live in, their context? These questions take center stage in my articles and short films. I want to make stories with substance that touch viewers, whilst always respecting the persons being portrayed.
- Short films; for exhibitions and (non profit) organizations. My short documentaries and film-portraits have been part of several museum exhibitions (a.o. in the Museum of Ethnology and the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal and the Drents Museum in Assen). My films tell timeless stories behind topical themes. Stories that focus on what connects us. I either work as a director with a cameraperson or I autonomously take care of all steps in the production process (research, script, camera and film-editing). View my film portfolio to get an impression of my work.
- Text; interviews, portraits and stories about societal trends. I published in a variety of Dutch newspapers and magazines, such as ‘het Parool’, ‘de Pers’, ‘FD Persoonlijk’, ‘Vrij Nederland’ and ‘Volkskrant Magazine’. I also write texts for exhibitions.
- Documentary projects: aside from commissioned work, I am developing my own documentary projects. Since the spring of 2017 I am working on the documentary ‘Notes from Brussels’ that examines the life choices of three women working in the competitive ‘Brussels bubble’ as they pursue their European dream.
