Jaap van Heusden has been a successful filmmaker in the Netherlands for a number of years, though sadly he is not so well-known in the UK.

Having met at the L'Abri Fellowship in Hampshire in March 2013, we discussed his various influences, his aims as a creative artist and what keeps him going during the often interminably long process of making a movie. In particular, we talked about his latest film, THE NEW WORLD (De Nieuwe Wereld) which will be broadcast on national Dutch TV in April 2013.
