Simone Eleveld is a filmmaker based in Amsterdam. Inspired by the hands-on mentality at De Ceuvel she started filming the proces. As the piles of footage grew larger, it slowly turned into her documentary debut.
After finishing her studies in Cultural Analysis and Literature, she started working as a filmmaker in 2013. The interaction between grassroots movements and authorities continue to fascinate her and the theme regularly pops up in her work.
Like the project it documents, this film wouldn't have been possible without the effort of many volunteers. This varied group of filmmakers, both starting and experienced, helped us to capture the story behind De Ceuvel. Thank you all so much!
