Though I'm a photographer in the first place, I love to make film impressions or short documentaries with my Canon 5D Mark III. Here you can find some examples where I had the role of director, camera-woman, sound-woman and editor. In some projects I worked together with external practitioners such as graders, sound-editors and editors.

MY RETIRED PARENTS (13 minutes)
Every winter, my parents drive from the Netherlands to southern Europe with their camper van. After 40 years of full-time working, they are now busy with cooking food, hanging out on sunny boulevards and playing jeu de boules with their neighbours. I followed them during their daily routines.
FRANS NELISSEN (1.40 minutes)
Hearing aid company Beter Horen (Hear Better) asked me to film some of their clients. Frans Nelissen is one of them, and in this short documentary he explains how he found out that he had a hearing problem, and how he could still continue with his passion for music.
MRS. DE VRIES (1.40 minutes)
Hearing aid company Beter Horen (Hear Better) asked me to film some of their clients. Mrs. de Vries (88) is one of them, and in this short documentary she talks emotionally about the day that she heard the birds chirping after years of silence.
TRAVELING TO BAGHDAD (4.10 minutes)
Dutch journalist Paulien Bakker travels to Baghdad for the 11th time, and I'm following her during her trip. This documentary is part of our common project 'Baghdad Today'.

Together with my husband Philip Brink, I created a short film about conversations between tourists and refugees on the Greek island Lesbos. You can watch the entire film and the project here.
