Director

  • PolakVanBekkum

    PolakVanBekkum's (Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum) work is about movement and landscape. ≪Lost on Arrival≫(2020) is a new step in their line of work. Over the years, they developed a cinematographic method for synchronizing audio recordings with mapped routes, thus realizing documentaries based on movement. This allowed them to create films that proceed within projected satellite images from Google Earth. Their earlier films, ≪A Collision of Sorts≫(2017), ≪Go Move Be≫(2018), and ≪The Ride≫(2019) were shown internationally.​
