I just started with a new project commissioned by the MAXXI and the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio delle Marche (and sponsored by the Dutch Embassy) about the earthquakes of 2016 in the region Marche. Besides me two Italian photographers Olivo Barbieri and Paola De Pietri are working on Terre in movimento
My short film Als je terugkomt woon ik aan het water
premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam last January. It won the award for Best Form at the Movecinearch festival and it will be screened at this traveling festival in Sao Paulo, Laguna in September and in Paris in November. It is also selected for the Architecture Film Festival in Rotterdam, which will take place from the 10th till the 14th of October and the Urban Eye Festival in Bucharest, which opens on the 7th of November.
On the 13th of October the book Spots in Shots. Narrating the Built Environment in Short Films
by Melanie van der Hoorn will be presented at the AFFR. In this book she also wrote an article about my first short film La Madre, il Figlio e l'Architetto
. During the presentation I will take part in a discussion about short films and architecture.
I am also invited by Lia Gieling from Cargo projects to take part in a talk about film and photography on the 22nd of October, with Lilet Breddels (moderator), artist Annaleen Louwes en writer Taco Hidde Bakker. More information soon.
My work is generously supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
