Mea Dols de Jong

Director at Halal, Amsterdam
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Summary

Mea is another talented, bright young director here at Halal. Originally studying to become a fiction director, Mea changed course quite literally and switched to documentary directing. The influence of fiction is however uncanny and remains a thread throughout her documentary work. Always out to question the medium of filmmaking, Mea is very much in a league of her own.
Mea’s skills and crafts center around observing and exposing interhuman relations down to their finest detail. Able to combine psychology with refined atmospheric aesthetics, Mea’s work appears subtle, yet is provocative at the same time.
Her films come from an authenticity that is truly powerful, and resonate with a large audience.
Mea received critical acclaim for her film ‘If Mama Ain’t Happy, Nobody’s Happy’, which has won over 15 international awards so far. Recently it has also won Slamdance Festival, which effectively made the film eligible for the Oscars 2017!
In early 2016 Mea was named one of the “Top 10 Europeans to Watch” by Variety.
Mea is definitely one to watch very closely!
