Russian Enigma, Michaïl Gorbachov
In 1998 Van Erven Dorens went to Moscou with the journalist and Eastern Europe specialist Tijn Sadée to interview Michaïl Gorbachov. The result was the short documentary Russian Enigma. It was the first time that this former world leader and ex-president of the Soviet Union spoke so openly about his leadership and his heritage. The film was selected for the Rotterdam Film Festival.
The good old days of Flash websites
This is the old website, a little outdated, but the look and feel of it is still very special. It was designed by the fantastic Flash designer Muster. (It probably won’t work with tablets and phones.)
Cameraman Onno van der Wal
Onno is the cameraman for most of Robins productions. He works for many productions, all over the world and he always produces very sensitive pictures with interesting lighting. This is his website.
Editor Barbara Hin
Her style of editing has become very important for Robins documentaries. Every cut Barbara makes tells its own story and moves and twists the film she works at in its own unexpected direction. Sushifilm is Barbaras company.
Arthur Herman is the founder of Zip Records, a label for independent music. He and Robin work together, directly or on the side, at several projects. Arthur produced the latest Defunkt-CD Mastervolt and asked Robin to produce the clips. Arthur is co-producer of Robins documentary 12 Fantasies, which is currently in production.
