  2. The story of Vladimir Kurashov, a young photographer from Moscow.
    In 2003 his left eye was seriously injured in a street fight. After multiple surgeries, the young man's normal vision still did not return. Vladimir focused on photography to distract himself from the trauma. A few years later, in the summer of 2012, the Moscow based gallery "Glaz" presented the photographer's first public exhibition "Poetics of the locality”.

  3. Nathan Verhelst, a 44 year old man from Sint-Niklaas in Belgium, demanded and received euthanasia after several failed gender operations. Nathan's backpack of life was filled with rejection and incest. Thinking of himself as a freak, he couldn't find peace as a woman nor as a man. Three doctors decided that his life quality wasn't guaranteed anymore and gave Nathan permission for euthanasia.

    After trying to convince him not to do it, his friends start to support him in his choice. Hoping he would feel loved again, and would find a reason to live. But Nathan didn't change his mind. "I'm certain", he said, "for the full 300 procent". He went. Dancing.

    The lethal injection was given at the University Hospital in Brussels. Nathan suffered from unbearable psychic ànd physical pain.

    I started following Nathan with my camera three years ago and documented how 'Nancy' became 'Nathan'. Little did I know the story would end this way. Among his friends, I stood beside his bed, to watch him find his freedom. The next day Nathan's story was in every newspaper in the world. Just like he wanted. This is the trailer of the documentary I'm making. About life, death, gender, identity and the quest for being loved. This connects us all. Please share.

    'Nathan' is touring the world now on documentary festivals. Here is your chance on a sneak preview of the full documentary. Please spread the word.

  4. After committing murder, Rufus must decide between keeping his dark deed a secret or exposing his crime to save the woman he loves, from the very man he killed.

    "Pelt" is a supernatural period thriller, with a dark fairy tale quality, mixing themes of desire, jealousy and guilt. Inspired by many sources, such as old European folk lore, and native American myths. The film acted as my Senior Thesis film during my time at film school. Filmed on location at the Fort Clatsop Replica outside of Sea side Oregon

    Pelt won the gold award for student film category in the Oregon Film awards.
