Joris (1973) graduated in 1996 from the University of Amsterdam on the subject of Economy and Ethics. Using the theory of Karl Marx he tried to prove the inevitable introduction of the basis income system.

During his studies he started working as a slow-motion operator for live sports events, ultimately ending up directing Eredivisie soccer matches and talk shows about sports.

In 2013 his debut documentary FC Rwanda premiered at IDFA and afterwards went all over the world, from Ivory Coast to Denmark and from Canada to Italy.

Always digging just that little bit deeper to find the stories that lie hidden underneath the surface, Joris directed commercials for Zilveren Kruis, Hartstichting, British Petroleum and ABN AMRO. Joris joined Wefilm in 2016.
