Bart Vermeer

After a training in Audiovisual Arts at the Brussels filmschool RITS (1993-1997) Bart Vermeer directed his own theatre plays and short film projects. His engagement as a social assistant at a Red Cross refugee centre inspired his first major film project. Touched by the problems refugees face, he decided to quit this job and make a documentary about this; “Shadow Warriors”.

Socially en environmentally engaged, Bart Vermeer feels that documentary can create a strong mirror to bring reality in a human and poetic way.
