For 'Veel Liefs Uit Holland', my partner Saskia and I directed and filmed the Nairobi bit of the final episode. Five expats from all over the world tried to find a partner through this Dutch reality TV show and we followed Nairobi-based Joep, who eventually met his girlfriend Thirsa through the program. They have been living together for some months now, so we visited the couple to film how they're doing.
Artfest is back! The talkshow about art, hosted by Marian Cousijn and Ernst-Jan Pfauth of De Correspondent, starts its new season on Amsterdams yearly 'Museum Night' event. The theme of the first edition is 'Future dreams' and will feature three guests from the international art scene - Agatha Haines, Jesse Howard and Lennart Booij will be interviewed on stage (more info here!). And because of the 'Museumnacht', the Artfest stage will be in the world famous 'Stedelijk Museum'! I will be there to direct the talkshow, and I hope I'll see you there as well: Museumnacht tickets can be bought through this link.
Recently, I have directed an evening about privacy for Dutch online journalism platform 'De Correspondent'. Speakers, writers, politicians and hackers talked and debated in front of a packed Stadsschouwburg in Utrecht, on one of the biggest issues of our time: privacy. It turns out you do have to hide something, so that's also the title of the book Dimitri Tokmetzis and Maurits Martijn (both journalists for De Correspondent) launched on the same evening. To see and read more about the evening and/or the book 'Je hebt wél iets te verbergen', click here & here!
