Michiel Robberecht currently lives in Kigali after having spent spent the last years working and living between Brussels, Kinshasa and Addis Ababa. Michiel got his Master degree in Arts & Literature at the University of Antwerp and during this studies fell in love with cinema. After university he didn’t attend film school but chose to learn making films by self-discovery. He set off to Congo where he lived for half a year in a small village in the Congolese rainforest to make his first independent movie Peer Gynt. Michiel’s films and photography are characterised by a magical universe wherein time, people and the places he gets to know along the way turn into fictional entities. At the moment he’s working on a new documentary in Congo, a new short with blind actors set on an island in France and his first feature film set in Eritrea.
