(26/03 - 14H) Tim De Keersmaecker (filmmaker)
Omar and Adam, two young refugees, have been welcomed, hosted and hired on Lampedusa, the Italian island where they stranded. Both boys have been lucky. however, their dreams reach further than the basic needs of shelter and food.
Tim De Keersmaecker was born in 1975. Before he attended film school, he was a male psychiatric nurse and therapist in a psychiatric centre for five years. He successfully graduated from film school in june 2007, with the short documentary Die Vögelein schweigen im Walde. Then, he directed Aperture, another short documentary for which he returned to his past life in psychiatry. Since 2013, he has combined filmmaking with a PhD on the representation of reality within documentary film, at the University of Brussels. No Man is an Island is his first feature length documentary.
