Het geluk van honden (2018) is selected for the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2019 and will be screened on 27 and 30 January!


The wet and the early nights come again to Brussels, we dive into the deep darkness & see before us a faint light which becomes flickering images, projected on a wall, in a room where a group of people gathered to watch or interact. Nina de Vroome & Rébecca Fruitman share with us visions of their worlds, captured moments and hints of warmth in the winter.

We are happy to be invited by McCloud Zicmuse and Anne Brugni at Hôtel Rustique for this evening.
I hope to see you on 22 December at 19 o’clock at Rue Verhasstraat 42, 1030 Brussels. Rébecca Fruitman will show a new film on super 8 and I will exclusively show some work in progress of my next film.


Field Recordings
From Friday 9 November to Sunday 11 November, there will be screenings, talks, listening sessions and an installation in WORM, Rotterdam.

The starting point of Field Recordings is the work by multi-disciplinary artist Joshua Bonnetta, who will present a new installation and several of his films and audio pieces in person. Field Recordings is an exploration of contemporary anthropological cinema and landscape film, with works by among others Laida Lertxundi, Deborah Stratman, Salomé Lamas and Chick Strand.

On Sunday at 14:00 my film Walking Fire (2017) will be shown in the Treaded Territories section. The premise of this video is an exercise in improvisational filming. I asked the film-students of the Sapientia University of Cluj-Napoca to walk on their own in a small village called Szèk for one day and make a video in which they weave their observations into a cinematographic thread. I did the same.
Have a look at the program here.

The sound recordings for this track were made this summer, during an artist residency at Art Center Slovenia.

Going back to the 18th century, Slovenian beekeepers had the tradition of painting their beehives with various scenes, linked to folklore stories, jokes or even news items.
Still to the present day, a beehouse accommodates rows of beehives that can be opened from the inside with doors that are lined with newspaper.
