My latest film The Mission will be released on 3 March 2016. It tells the story of Dutch colonel Joost de Wolf who is sent to Mali as part of the UN mission MINUSMA. De Wolf is a hardened and savvy soldier who has devoted his life to the army. Upon his arrival, the Malinese army launches an attack on the insurgents and De Wolf finds himself in a mission unable to keep the factions apart. Hampered by the lack of political will from the UN and his own masters, he starts questioning official policies and unwittingly jeopardizes his career. 

Supported by both the Dutch Filmfund and the V-Fund I am organizing so-called DEBRIEFS after screenings. Itís my intention and my ambition to give my audience the opportunity to truly connect with the people in my film and the complexities they have to deal with. Therefore we debrief military and civilian personnel who are involved in security policies. For a complete and up-to-date list of screenings and DEBRIEFS see Facebook and Website. If youíre abroad and would like to host a screening yourself, contact Zeppers Film or distributor Amstel Film.
Hope to see you there.
