Rolf De Heer
Born in Heemskerk, Holland, Rold de Heer migrated to Australia with his family. From eighteen, he spent seven years working at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, until he decided it was time "to stop dealing with other people's programs and make some of my own." In 1977 he was granted entry to Australia's prestigious Film Television and Radio School, completing the three-year course with diplomas in production and directing. Having written, directed and produced feature films for nearly two decades, de Heer has become one of Australia's leading filmmakers. His work consistently challenge moral conventions and push the boundaries of the filmmaker's art.
De Heer is currently in production on his eleventh feature film TEN CANOES. The film is being made with the community of Ramingining, on the Arafura Swamp in remote Arnhem Land, and will be co-directed by leading Indigenous film actor, David Gulpilil.
