Like no other director we know, Robbert mastered the balancing act of creating gentle and atmospheric narratives while maintaining a clear-cut message. As a self-taught director, his endless curiosity is one of his greatest assets. Robbert explores all corners of a subject before he starts filming, in order to make complex subjects and emotions relatable. Once done wandering, his way of working is clean. He’s the clear and kind communicator that gets things done. Robbert hopes his body of work will one day read as chapters of his life. His current chapter? Showing masculine gentleness and vulnerability. He aspires to create long-format movies that make people rethink their beliefs, as he wants to contribute to a world where there is more room for nuance instead of absolute truths. For all the grey in between black and white.
