“My work is motivated by my belief in seeing the humanity in all people we engage with, and in having compassion – not only with people who you naturally gravitate to, but with everyone. Having compassing can deeply impact your choices and fuel one’s drive for peace and justice.”
Chris Rijksen (NL, 1991) works together with Bart Peters and Jonah Lamers as the collective the Transketeers. As three transgender men, we use our own visibility as a tool for shaping the conversation and building bridges, and we make movies to empower others to tell their own stories stories. We focus on making it human, with both humour and authenticity.
