Description

Filmmaker Alex Pitstra has lived his life pulled between cultures. Raised in Holland by his mother, Anneke, he longed to know more about Mohsen, his absent Tunisian father. Alex was the result of a holiday romance, conceived after 36-year-old divorcee Anneke met 23-year-old Mohsen in Tunisia. In Bezness as Usual, he attempts to get to know his father, make sense of his roots, and bridge his own personal cultural divide.

Alex Pitstra was born in Dordrecht, Netherlands, in 1979. He made his first film at 15, and worked in music production before setting up his own production company to make commercials, installations, and corporate films. He has also worked as a director of photography.
