Ethnographer & Film Director


Formally educated as a master of Ethnology, René combines the scientific with the artistic in his projects. During his ethnographic studies in Copenhagen and Berlin, René was working as a cinematographer on several short films in Denmark and abroad.

In the recent years, René has adopted visual anthropological methods. These filmic methods can make explicit not only the problematics in everyday life that we face, but also those that we sense and feel. Using film methods to observe and experience everyday life from another perspective can catalyze reflections about our present time that can help us shape our future.
