Claire van der Poel (the Netherlands, 1977)

Directing transformation while undergoing it
"In 2009, while doing research for a documentary about the phenomenon ‘2012, the end of the world as we know it’, I decided that the new Master’s Degree Programme was a great opportunity. I would be able to develop this project as well as investigate the theme of transformation and build my creative identity. To me, transformation is the most fascinating aspect in life. This fascination is always reflected in my work, in one way or another." read more

Sonja Wyss (Switzerland, 1967)

Completing intuition with reflection
"So far, my films don’t contain dialogue. My research question is: how can I use language as a cinematic element without overshadowing the image?  In order to investigate this question I have written three short texts, based on personal memories. Each of these texts is the basis for two or three different screenplays. In each of them, language plays a different role." read more
