Red Dust (excerpt)

2024 / 4K/ 16:9/ stereo sound/ 17:09 min. / French with English subtitles

A couple of times a year, the sky turns red in France. Sand dust from the Sahara is passed through a difference in air pressure from North Africa to Southern Europe. This dust, a time capsule containing cesium-137 from the French nuclear tests in Algeria, covers everything. The film exposes the impact of a war that was never fought. A French veteran and archeology students share and speculate on what will be remembered and what will be hidden under the sand forever.

Filmmaker/Artistic Archeologist 
I am a filmmaker and artistic archeologist based in Rotterdam (NL). I graduated with a BFA in Audio-Visual Arts from Gerrit Rietveld Academie (NL) in 2012 and hold a MFA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths University (UK) in 2016.

I believe in the revealing value of long-term research. The deep dive into complex matter is an important part of my work process. With my film and video projects I want to make complex (invisible) social, political and economical issues visible. My work often arises from the question; what remains after a war and what is the impact of these remains on people and nature?
I am working as an artistic archeologist digging through our most recent history. Before it is nostalgic, before it is a story that lies generations before us. Not only to demystify, but to make the mediated and almost historicized and perhaps forgotten reality personal again.

I initiate workshops for children and youngsters and I am always interested in starting new collaborations.
