I'm Louise, an independent documentary filmmaker, born and raised in Belgium.
In 2014, I graduated at RITCS school of Arts with MamaMin, a personal documentary about my mother.
Right after graduating film school I flew to Congo, to work on Renzo Martens’ documentary White Cube. Next, I started working on documentary and
music projects in Belgium until I moved to Austin Texas, late 2019.
Here, I made The Conversation in which I focused on the Black Lives Matter protests that erupted in Austin. Together with Griet Goelen, I recently completed Buck Fever,
a short youth documentary about a young cheerleader going on her first hunt.
Currently I'm working on Eastside Perseverance, a documentary on
the disappearance of one of the last standing black neighborhoods in Austin Texas.
