About the director

Born in Temse in 1963, Jan Verheyen launched himself on the international film scene at the tender age of 18 as co-organizer and programmer of the Knokke-Heist Film Festival. The event, dedicated to independently produced American Films, was held only twice - in 1982 and 1983 - but nevertheless succeeded in luring people like Robert Altman, Dennis Hopper, Roger Corman, Sam Raimi, Susannah York, Graham Chapman and Paul Bartel to Belgium's North sea coast. In 1985 Verheyen, with his associate Mark Punt, founded Independent Films, a distribution outlet which quickly became the most important independent Belgian film distributor. Specializing in American, English and local productions, Independent released between 20 and 30 films a year.
