ABOUT

Hi! 

 

I'm Louise, an independent filmmaker. 

I was born and raised in Belgium but nowadays I'm spending my time in the never dull Austin Texas. 

My heart is in documentary filmmaking as I’m deeply moved by people and their stories.

 

For over 5 years I’ve been working on several short and long term projects around the world, including Belgium, the Netherlands, Congo and the USA.
