What crisis, struggle or setback do you need to meet yourself, develop yourself and finally be satisfied with yourself? This is a question that concerns me as a documentary filmmaker. Recurring elements in my films are silence and loneliness. Because these terms have a negative connotation in our society I am looking for a way to convince the viewer of the beauty of this. With my films I hope to inspire people to exploit lows in their lives instead of sitting them out.

Heen En Weer (Back And Forth) is a short documentary about loss, loneliness and silence. In this documentary I tell the story of a ferryman that just lost his wife. Instead of seeking diversion with other people he tries to embrace silence and solitude. For this documentary I applied elements of slow cinema trough long static wide takes. With this I hoped to let the audience experience a similar feeling solitude or loneliness.
