In Kropsdam Is Iedereen Gelukkig
by Joren Molter
Joren Molter (1993, Borgercompagnie) started directing fiction films, during his pre-education in theatrics at De Noorderlingen. At the age of 16, his film “Full of live” was selected for the debut competition on the Netherlands Film Festival in Utrecht. A year later, he co-directed the mosaic-film “Foreigners”, which takes places in New York, Berlin and Groningen. When he was 18 years old, he started at the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam for the course of director of fiction.
During his education, Joren directed four short films besides his work at the Film Academy: “De lullige levensloop van een saaie man” and a triptych of films about domestic violence: “Blue”, “Elle Est Belle” and “Rabbit”, starring Marcel Hensema, Wil van der Meer and Nadja Hüpscher.
Joren’s work stands out in its style constancy. Themes as passions and weaknesses of the human kind are common in his films. Joren returns to his roots in Groningen with his graduation film “Greetings from Kropsdam”, where he started filmmaking.
