DAN GEESIN is a writer/director, musician, artist and creative producer at Rots Filmwerk in Amsterdam. He initiated their ‘Work Space’ from where most recently 2 young film makers have been awarded a Wild Card by the Dutch Filmfund. Dan’s intuitive stories are often embellished with a poetic melancholy and are darkly amusing. His music and sound design is often used to parallel the cinematic narrative allowing the audience to become more saturated in the themes of the work.
