Biography

Frans Zwartjes had worked as a musician, violin maker, nurse and teacher at the Academy for Industrial Design Eindhoven before he began to profile himself as a filmmaker in the late sixties. From his first films, his handwriting is visible. On his own raw and intuitive way he caught his themes on film: sexuality, power and oppression. The films earned him international recognition quickly, and a number of prestigious awards.

Zwartjes also became known as a teacher of a generation of experimental filmmakers in Eindhoven, The Hague - he gave long film workshops at the Free Academy - and at Amsterdam's Rietveld Academy.
