Regisseur
Ramón Gieling

Ramón Gielings career can be seen as versatile, passionate and wayward. His motion pictures, film essays, short films and documentaries are without exception recognizable to his signature. To Gieling it’s not about the logic; his films are not based on rational motives. He tries to grab the elusive and mythical into cinematic interpretations. Gielings films don’t lead to unambiguous endings. People and events only exist in the eyes and stories of others. Janneke Doolaard produced Ramón’s The Left Winger (2008). In addition to the cinema hits Erbarme Dich – Matthäus Passion Stories (2015) and About Canto (2011), the cooperation between DOXY and director Ramón Gieling resulted in Memories Of A Sad Dawn (2014) and the short music film Great Lengths (2010).  Gieling is also known for En Un Momento Dado – Johan Cruijff, Duende and Tramontana. His latest film FATUM (Room 216) premiers at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) in 2017.
