Dutch director Jan Louter creates independent documentaries that are visually and conceptually both imaginative and challenging. He has profiled many writers and artists in his films, including John Fante and Jean Rhys, but is equally interested in social issues that transcend local importance.
Louter creates his imagery and soundscapes in order to translate important themes and undercurrents into an evocative story, offering viewers a new experience of the subject matter while keeping it accessible. He often works with cameramen Erik van Empel and Melle van Essen.
