Growing up as a shy kid in a small village, Ruud Lenssen (Broekhuizenvorst – the Netherlands, 1986) naturally learned the art of observing. But it took until his studies at the film academies of Rotterdam, the Netherlands (WdKA 2007-2010) and Genk, Belgium (LUCA School of Arts 2013-2016, master’s degree, graduated with honors) before he really knew how to give expression to this. His love for the documentary genre was inevitable.

The lessons of his youth manifest themselves in all films by Ruud Lenssen because of the observing style, but also through the choice of socially relevant themes that he portrays in a modest and personal way. After all, it is often those personal stories that provide insight into how to deal with the major issues of life.
