ROTS FILMWERK

“Our films balance between experimental and narrative”

Rots Filmwerk was established by siblings Esther and Hugo Rots, to produce bold and outspoken films made by artists. This partnership resulted in award winning films, two of which were nominated for a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Their first feature ‘Can go through skin’ premiered at the Berlinale, Forum, won many awards including a Fipresci and Best Dutch Film of 2009. Rots Filmwerk is currently working a.o. on the post-production of ‘Mette’, the second feature by Esther Rots, and on the financing of ‘Sputum’, the debut feature film by artist/musician Dan Geesin.

REVIEW

“‘Can go through skin’ (…) an often striking film, on both the visual and aural levels.”

– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

“Dutch director Esther Rots’ film is a real discovery: a fragmentary, expressionist take on one woman’s experience, with a striking performance from Rifka Lodeizen.”

– SIGHT AND SOUND
