ABOUT JEREMY FLOHR
Jeremy Flohr (Utrecht, 1984) is filmmaker and visual storyteller. Whether Jeremy produces filmportraits, poetryfilms or documentaries, his work is at the intersection of colonial history, personal stories and social themes.
''Dutch coloniality has been deeply rooted in both of my parents’ family histories. The impact of colonialism for me, is that in my upbringing, language has never been part of transferring indigenous cultural norms and values. Which resulted in displacement when it comes to expressing emotions in words. As a creative I’m very close to my feelings. So to express feelings and emotions, I’m using film instead of words as a language to tell stories.''
Intrigued by inspiring people and their personal stories of marginal groups; with his sensitive feel for storytelling and unique eye as a filmmaker, Jeremy keeps uncovering stories the world needs to know, or better yet, to see.
Jeremy Flohr is part of the Beyond Walls collective based in Amsterdam. As a collective of creative minds, Beyond Walls uses the power of art, research and storytelling to amplify diaspora and community voices.
