Rogier van der Zwaag

director

Each of Rogier’s films is a new step in his search for synergy between sound and image, reality and imagination.

Like the scientists of old, he starts with nothing but a hypothesis – and a camera.

As he experiments gather speed they take over his studio, his house and his life. Props pile up, hard drives are overloaded and showers become a distant memory.

Yet all this is forgotten when he releases his creations, as time, shape and perspective are turned inside out to dance across our screens.
