UNDERAPPRECIATED MOVIEMAKER: Ronnie Sluik

"you asked me to write an essay, well i terribly dislike self theorizing. the statements i would like to get to a possible audience is in the work itself. like in the twitter video you have seen i tend to avoid having a fixed position or opinion. i guess that makes me for the vaudience unreliable and therefore not too desirable. i blame me? no." - Ronnie Sluik

 

[tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE note: In order to inform the interested public who the UNDERAPPRECIATED MOVIEMAKERS are whose work will be screened at the UNDERAPPRECIATED MOVIEMAKERS FESTIVAL. I've asked all the participants to date to provide:

1. a bio (short or long, you decide - short ones, obviously, tend to be read more)

2. a picture

3. a list of your works (either complete or selected - but make sure you list your earliest movie to substantiate that you've been at it for 30 or more years)

4. 1 or more links to relevant websites

5. AN ESSAY EXPLAINING WHY YOU'RE UNDERAPPRECIATED (This is very important. What I'm hoping for is not only an explanation of why you feel underappreciated but what it is about you & your work that you think leads to people neglecting &/or rejecting it. This can be a socio-political-cultural analysis of what might be shortcomings of our society.)

Ronnie has been the 2nd to reply & while his #5 statement isn't the requested essay & doesn't explain why he's UNDERAPPRECIATED it at least hints at his lifestyle.]

5)? doing my best sending you something tonight. thing is i am constantly (kind of forced)  shifting (guesthouses at the moment and typing on other peoples pc s... winter biking, staying over, moving from and to several cities in netherlands and germany. no place (nor possesions except the clothes i wear) of my own since november 17 anymore. next 2 weeks will continue to be pretty unstable. from 23 february i ll be in norway for some time but pretty much off line (accept maybe once a week)... do not know yet where i ll be after. so believe me i do my best. you asked me to write an essay, well i terribly dislike self theorizing. the statements i would like to get to a possible audience is in the work itself. like in the twitter video you have seen i tend to avoid having a fixed position or opinion. i guess that makes me for the vaudience unreliable and therefore not too desirable. i blame me? no.
