Food & Film #3 - Thomas Vroege
Sunday January 14 we are hosting Food&Film No.3 together with Halal Film and Photography– a matinee brunch + film viewing with the director here to talk about his or her work.
For this edition, we are excited to have award-winning Amsterdam based filmmaker Thomas Vroege with his latest documentary ‘A Stranger Came to Town’:
Complex realities can never be reduced to simple stories of good and evil. Certainly not in the case of the Syria-conflict. Interviews with four inhabitants of Aleppo form the backbone of this cinematic essay, each share their personal experiences.
Thomas Vroege is most known for being honoured with the European Film Award for his documentary ‘9 Days From my Window’.
Graduating from Sint Joost Academy of Arts with short documentary ‘The Son & The Stranger’, he entered the world of filmmaking with a win in the The Dutch Film Fund’s ‘Wildcard Award’.
In addition to being a documentary director, Vroege also works as an editor and cinematographer. He was an advisor to the Dutch Cultural Media Fund, and is currently a board member of the Dutch Directors Guild and Docking Station.
