Jimmy Hendrickx (Belgium)

He taught film Studies and Mixed Media workshops at the Ghent Academy of Fine arts while being a guest lecturer at local university colleges in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. His short film Semalu at an abandoned construction site with local kids in Malaysia, won several awards. In 2012 he landed in Indonesia and developed his ambitious project A punk Daydream, gaining the following of thousands of local punks online.

As a subject, Jimmy reflects on themes such as ecology, culture and politics, often through the eyes of youth and the oppressed. This is expressed in colorful portraits and stories of human characters.
