Juliette Stevens aims to make movies that matter. Her moving portraits – romantic but never without a rough edge – hold a positive mirror up to society. In each of her honest and above all human stories, you’ll find the power of resilience.
Resilience drives each of her portraits, being an everlasting source of youthful energy. Juliette weaves it into her stories, always. People who get knocked down, tend to get up again – and that’s something we should treasure. As an educational science student, Juliette had no idea she’d end up being a filmmaker, but she carries with her the experience of having seen the tremendous mental strength of vulnerable children.
Making films is in Juliette’s blood: her great-grandfather Willy Mullens was a Dutch cinema pioneer. But where he specialized in practical jokes and slapsticks, his great-granddaughter prefers to focus on today’s serious issues that will shape society tomorrow.
