Two shorts by Jochem de Vries at Cannes 2009

Dutch filmmaker Jochem de Vries can not be happier. Two of his short films have been selected by the International Film Festival in Cannes. While his fiction short Missing is competing for a Golden Palm in the festival’s international short film competition, his documentary short Trans-Siberian Voices will screen during the 'Semaine de la Critique’.
‘As a filmmaker Cannes is the most exiting event to be involved in, especially when you have a film in competition. I still can not quite believe it’, says 29-year old Jochem de Vries.

Missing shows how a mother and her 7-year old daughter are dealing with the little problems of every day life. For the mother bringing her daughter to school and not being late for the girl’s school trip, is clearly not a very ordinary occasion. The film, for which Jochem de Vries also wrote the screenplay, has been produced by Trueworks.

Trans-Siberian Voices is part of the Nisimasa project Cine-Train during which six short documentaries were shot and assembled during the journey with the Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Vladivostok. Trans-Siberian Voices shows us different people, singing their folk songs, while the train continues to drive to the east. The film premiered at the Vladivostok International Film Festival in Russia.

The Cannes International Film Festival takes place from May 13 – 24, 2009.
