Heddy Honigmann DocuCoach at Binger

Internationally acclaimed documentary filmmaker Heddy Honigmann (amongst others; O Amor Natural (1996), Crazy (1999), Forever (2006) and El Olvido (2008)) will be Bingers first DocuCoach. In February 2010 she will open her doors to give coaching on demand to talented and experienced Netherlands-based documentary filmmakers that show passion and urgency to make the film that will be discussed in the consultation.

“It’s 1965. French filmmaker Jean Rouch – godfather of the cinema vérité – follows an African tribe on a lion hunt. In the jungle they meet another tribe. The tribal chief points at Rouch who’s filming and says: “This is mister Rouch who’s hunting the lion with us.” An old African proverb says: “The eye of the outsider sees only what he already knows”. As Bingers first DocuCoach I would like to welcome filmmakers who – just as Rouch- want to become insiders or those who already are”, states Heddy Honigmann. 

In up to three coaching sessions filmmakers can discuss the project they are working on; from film idea to work in progress. DocuCoach Heddy sees this as an exchange of experience and advice.
