Geertjan Lassche

Investigation journalist and documentary maker Geertjan Lassche (1976) makes independent work for mainly NPO (Netherlands Public Broadcasting). His films have been shown at international festivals, foreign television stations and Lassche won many prizes. He also makes television programs. He was named Journalist of the Year in 2020 for a daily program during the Corona pandemic. His documentaries can roughly be distributed into two styles: the essayist documentary and the so-called 'direct cinema'. When using the latter, guerilla-style filming method, he operates alone or in very small teams, wanting to make the viewer feel part of a process. He follows the characters close-to-the-skin. In his essayistic films, he immerses himself in subjects and persons for a longer period of time before he starts filming.
