Ruwan Heggelman

After graduating from the Art Academy in Utrecht, Ruwan has mainly been active in the industry as a fiction director and screenwriter. In his work, Ruwan always uses multiple genres to tell a story. He believes that – like life itself – all projects should have it has its horrors, comedic situations or romantic moments. But, Ruwan does have a natural curiosity for exploring the darker side of humans. This leaves a playground of possibilities, which is reflected throughout his body of work, with comedic yet dark short films such as BESTE VRIENDEN and MIME and most recently: GNOMES.
