Alex Van Warmerdam is the iconic Dutch film director, actor, scriptwriter, producer and composer. He was the scriptwriter and actor at almost all his films and, as a rule, the main character. He has over 30-year experience in cinema. Winner of the Prince Bernhard Culture Prize for contribution to the culture of the Netherlands. Warmerdam follows uncompromising writing style unmistakably associating him with his work. His films are full of irony and absurd, satire and black humor, cynicism and aesthetics. He is always looking for new forms and approaches. Due to his extraordinary style, Warmerdam takes pride of place in the Dutch and international cinema. The director is said to tell about weird situations in his life in a manner as if he was making weather reports. This is his calling card.
