Director Biography – Jasper Bronkhorst (BLOODBURN)

19973f785b headshot

Went from journalism and photography to many other jobs and experiences, like running a nightclub and owning a restaurant, all the way up to the moment that I felt I was punched enough in the face by life to even consider going into cinema.

 

Director Statement

 

“When we go to a play we expect a heightened, stylized language; the dull realism of the streets is unendurably boring, though we may escape to the nearest bar to listen to the same language with relief. Better life than art imitating life.”

– Pauline Kael, Trash, Art and the Movies.
