Documentary: INDISCH ZWIJGEN
Indisch Zwijgen investigates the colonial history of the Dutch-Indies, by asking what it means to have the Dutch-Indonesian identity in postcolonial times. It focusses on the silence around this history, what has not been said and the stories that have not been told. In a studio, we recreated the common memory of this former country that no longer exists in order to break the silence on the (colonial) history.

Documentary: IN HET DONKER GEZIEN
In Het Donker Gezien explores the perception of blind and partially sighted people in a visual society. How do their senses play a role in their daily life? It focusses on the strength of being blind in stead of the limitations. With animation, cinematographic close ups and sound design the blind perception is recreated in this mid-lenght documentary.
Interview with Cinesud about my first documentary film ‘In Het Donker Gezien’
Documentary: CROSSING REALITIES
Digital worlds provide a shifting reality. Social media, computers and televisions play an increasingly important role in our lives. Are we withdrawing too much from the physical world, creating a sense of disruption and loneliness? Why do we look for comfort in the digital in order to escape from the physical world? Can the distinction between the physical world and the digital world still be made visible? In the short documentary Crossing Realities (working title) we critically investigate the role of technology by diving into the world of artists who play with different realities (Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality)
