A selection of Gieling's work can be seen in the Eye Filmmuseum in December. In the same month, the premiere of Gieling's new feature film Sisyphus at Work and his book 'Wegens werkzaamheden geopend' is published.

Filmmaker, writer, theatre-maker, visual artist: whatever he does, Ramón Gieling wants to get to the bottom of things and see what drives people. The maker of En un momento dado, an extraordinary film about Johan Cruyff’s years in Barcelona, and Erbarme Dich (St Matthew Passion), likes to navigate the edge between reality and imagination.

As a teenager, Ramón Gieling (Utrecht, 1954) lived in Spain, a country he considers his second home. "Duende", the term that the poet Federico García Lorca uses to describe the elusive and dark moment when a performer reaches the pinnacle of their ability and moves his audience, was a key concept for Gieling.

"Duende" means to surrender to forces outside of yourself. Poets, composers, dancers, bullfighters, artists, singers, vagrants, footballers - they are all capable of duende.
