Documentary Filmmaker – (home of the Renaissance Soul)

“The documentary films I love to make have one thing in common only…the subject and the story needs to crack my heart open and break it. And I don’t want it to mend, not before the film is finished.” – Carolien Oosterhoff

As a filmmaker I am searching for the pure stories in our great universal themes. Somehow I am first and foremost drawn to Life (Eros) and Death (Thanatos). Both scare me but I equally love them. Everything is in them: love, truth, lies, anxiety, mystery, wisdom, power, sex, life, creation. I want the raw. The irrational. Without my main characters being drama kings & queens telling plastic fantastic stories. Because in the end it’s subtlety in human life that tells the big story.
