Joeri takes himself way too serious when he likes to think of himself as a filmmaker, philosopher, speculative being. His previous directing-excercices got shown at Theater aan Zee Ostend, Rotterdam Open Doek and the Workers Unite Film Festival, NY. He published critical essays for Rekto:Verso magazine and is active as an ecological activist. Soon, he will graduate (fingers crossed) as a mamaster in Audiovisual Arts and Art History. In-between he tasted General Economics, bweirk!
Wan-Lun doesn't like protests, doesn't like dancing, doesn't like films, actually. She is a rebellious little rat who will fuck up your film choreography in order to create anarchist nonsense, in other words, pure gold. And she is a professional at it! She also got formed as a professional contemporary dancer in Taipei, Taiwan.
Despite of shooting stars in the water reflection, Samuel has a great sensibility for poeto-anarchist images. Secretely, he is only collaborating in this film in order to train his back muscles for all the film's complex cameramovements with different kinds of heavy camera stabilizers. Samuel only just finished his studies in cinematography but is already in high demand. Currently, he is hired for his first feature film.
Marli may not hate humans, but she loves Dystopian Optimism. She is a divine advocate for the power of the movements of plants and with her dark witchy skills, she turns every boring design into something "what-the-heck?!" that will haunt you into the void for-evah-bitch! She also got educated in graphic design and fine arts in Stellenbosch, South Africa. PS: She only rolls with bad boys of theory, like Timothy Morton, Hakim Bey and other weird shizzle.
The best sweet assistant director. Annigje manages to connect her great director's eye to technical knowledge. Having collaborated on several projects, she is able to follow Joeri's freakish mind and reflect his own ideas back to him. Her advice is always spot on! Next year she will graduate as a director at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. Viva Hollandia!
Do it yourself for evah! On top of her experience as a costume designer, Alix loves the poeto-anarchist vibe of the film. She created more than 10 original masks for the film and composted all the dance outfits. Straight from Antwerp village!
Mira immediately flew over from South Africa to edit/save the film. Her wizardry will put the uprising energy of the footage back in the ground, not underground, in the ground. Besides editing, she is also working on her own films, coming ssssssooooon.
Jelrik is a young Dutch dude who sacrificed part of his exams for helping out in the production management of this film. He harrassed the police agencies to try and steal their police uniforms and guarded the set with his thousands of eyes. A new eagle is born, and he is coming to get ya!
Camille is Samuel's cinematography partner in crime. Her calmness shines a divine light through the dark night sky, which is exaclty the opposite of what this film desires. Luckily, she can also adjust the lights. She is also working on her first feature film job.
