Dutch filmmaker Chiel Aldershoff was born in 1973 in Amsterdam. After studying psychology for 2 years he turned to film. In 2000 he graduated from the College of Arts in Utrecht as a documentary director. Since then he has been working as a freelance director and editor for documentaries, television programmes and multi-platform commissioned works.
Chiel has worked with NCRV, VPRO, NPS, RVU, BOS, Joodse Omroep, AVRO, KRO, SBS6, RTL, Omroep Flevoland and AT5. His works have shown at numerous international film festivals around the world. His aim is to provoke discussion through depicting universal themes from an unusual perspective. On the one hand, he focuses on ordinary people and magnifies everyday moments which can easily go unnoticed. On the other hand, he chooses to portray more extreme and often misunderstood characters, with an alternative outlook on life.
