About the artist
Daan Bunnik was born and raised in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Bunnik completed his bachelor film theory in 2009, during which he discovered that he wanted to make films instead of analyzing them. His graduation film Skin feels (graded with distinction) is a diptych examining Bunnik’s perception on the ageing body of his parents. It was a major breakthrough for him, because he was able to convey the intensity of experienced emotion through film and make the audience experience these emotions too. With this film Bunnik travels to several film festivals across Europe (a.o. Encounters, IDFA, Belgrade, dokumentART). Currently he is in pre production of his new fiction short that depicts a son trying to detach himself from his sick mother.
