Biography

Producer and director Maurits H. Binger came from a family of entrepreneurs in Haarlem. He was a co-owner of the Steen-, Licht- and Boekdrukkerij der Firma Emrik & Binger. He was also an avid amateur photographer.

In May of 1912, he co-founded two film societies: de Maatschappij voor Wetenschappelijke Cinematografie and de Maatschappij voor Artistieke Cinematografie. These companies produced documentaries and feature films, respectively. In 1913, both companies merged into Filmfabriek Hollandia. Binger was above all an entrepreneur, and film was his hobby.

But after the departure of Hollandia's first permanent director, Louis H. Chrispijn Sr., Binger started directing more frequently. With about thirty feature films to his name, he became one of the most productive Dutch directors of the 1910s.

After the First World War, Binger tried to expand Hollandia internationally by working with the British distributor A.G. Granger and the director B.E. Doxat-Pratt. The cooperation did not lead to the desired success, and soon after Binger’s premature death in 1923, his brainchild Filmfabriek Hollandia was declared bankrupt.
