Director Biography

Arjan BrentjesArjan Brentjes started his career as a painter, and in 2008 he switched to moving images. Since 2010 he has been dedicated to making short films, focusing mostly on animation in recent years. Arjan often takes the viewer back to a visual style from the past, to look at our present, or future from there. Thereby wittily commenting on the development of our technological society and the haughtiness of man.
