The documentary “Tweespraak” portrays a small city in The Netherlands roiled by ethnic tensions. The film starts of with the city’s former mayor expressing why he felt compelled to act firmly. As other characters are introduced, the narrative becomes more diffuse. What starts as simply finding a solution to a problem, ends up touching a fundamental question: how to bridge differences within a community without making anyone an outsider?

The official Première of the Bridge took place by the end of 2019 in Lumière Maastricht including Q&A. 

The Bridge got officially selected for the third edition of the Limburgs Film Festival.  During the festival I had the honour to receive the price for best new filmmaker. 

Unfortunately, the end of the year brought sadness by the loss of Amar Rahou. Which is why I want to dedicate my film to you. I wish you the best.
