Kees-Jan C.J. Mulder (1986, Director, writer, editor) studied Theology in Utrecht and Amsterdam and Directing Fiction at the HKU (cum laude).
His graduation film Gods Lam (21 min, 2013, HKU Award and Winner Youth Award ZUBROFFKA Film Fest) about a boy who accidentally becomes attached to the lamb that is intended for the Feast of the Sacrifice, ended up internationally at film festivals and in museums (including MAXXI National Museum of the XXI Century Arts, Rome).
With Dos Santos (20 min, 2015, BIND, Golden Calf selection) he again researched what surrender may cost.
NUDES (15 min, 2022, in competition at Chicago's International Children's Film Fest), about the disappearance of a group of boys, took 6 years to make with a youth group from the Elburg community and premiered at Cinekid, where it got nominated for best film.

Het Wonder van Oirsbeek (31 min, 2023, WITFILM, premiere NFF) in co-direction with Jaap van
Heusden, is a documentary variation on Van Heusden's fictional film 'The Man from Rome': for years they followed a Limburg couple with a living room packed with statues of saints crying over all the bad news on their TV screen. 
Mulder made dozens of films in Africa and Asia, moving from documentary to participatory video and more hybrid forms of filmmaking; several of his found footage video columns for Dag6 and NieuwLicht went viral. In CineSud's script lab he is now working on Saint Europe, his first feature length hybrid fiction film.
