Film Director

Biography Director

Reinilde Jonkhout is a multi-media artist working and living in Amsterdam. She feels that in our modern age, mediums are fluid, creating appealing art-works that navigate the tight-rope of a more painful critical analysis of our current Western living and pleasurable observations that aim to involve the spectator on different levels – both conscious and subconscious.
While Reinilde passes for being born and raised in the Netherlands, her background is more complex, having spent ten years of her life on the island and country Curaçao, during high-school.
Her passion for the moving image grew especially strong when attending an intense screenwriting course in 2008 while studying Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In 2013 she finished a two-year Master in Film, graduating with an art-installation, an immersive audio-visual experience and having written the screenplay for another graduation film. After graduation, she participated in several art shows in Amsterdam’s underground art scene, with photographs and painting, and started researching ideas for the Cindy Claus film, especially about myths and origin stories that aren’t Christian.
