Charlot van Heeswijk is a young filmmaker and visual artist based in Berlin. Much like her paintings and photographic works, her films often revolve around questions of identity, gender and the self in context. Her most recent documentary and fiction works are heavily influenced by her involvement in electronic music and club culture and are aiming to open a conversation on societal issues as well as portraying feminist narratives on screen. She also works as a freelance editor and casting agent and joined the Berlin art collective and production house SILENTFILM in 2017.
