An inspiring documentary filmmaker.
From a Cahiers du Cinema interview with him, talking about one of the ‘characters/subjects’ in his film ‘Amsterdam Global Village’:
“He told me he knew a Bolivian who was married to a Dutch woman, a musician who made his living as a cleaner in supermarkets, and he was preparing a music festival in his little village in the Andes. There you had a concentrate of all the tensions: being a cleaner here, a cultural hero there, and making money with his music to buy something for his community. I saw a story in it right away. I met him shortly after and found this man to be almost angelic.”
