Guido Hendrikx

Netherlands

By making films I’m trying to live and outlive reality, without any certainty. The medium feels like a religion, an imaginary obsession, with which I’m able to happily fool - and possibly reproduce - myself.

Guido Hendrikx was born in Eindhoven in 1987 and studied at Utrecht University and the Netherlands Film Academy. His award-winning shorts ESCORT (2013) and AMONG US (2014) were featured at film festivals throughout the world. His feature debut STRANGER IN PARADISE (2016) was the opening film of IDFA. It was theatrically released in cinemas in Italy, the UK, Belgium and The Netherlands and nominated for the European Film Awards: Best Documentary. He has written several screenplays in collaboration with other directors (Ena Sendijarevic, a.o.) and worked as a curator for the video department of The Correspondent. A MAN AND A CAMERA (2021) is his newest work and was selected at CPH:DOX.
