Anne Reijniers (Belgium, 1992) graduated in 2014 in the Master of Audio-Visual Arts from Luca school of Arts Brussels. Her fiction film Looking at Marie is been shown at EMAF (DE), OFFoff (BE) and Cinematek (BE) amongst other places.

In an extra master at KASK Ghent in 2014-2016 she focused on documentary. Starting from April 2015 she worked on the film Échangeur with Rob Jacobs (researcher at the University of Antwerp) in collaboration with art centre 'Het Bos' in Antwerp, BE and the art festival 'Kinact' in Kinshasa, DRC.

Rob Jacobs
 (Belgium, 1989) is a PhD candidate in Film studies and Visual Culture, connected to the Visual & Digital Cultures Research Center at the University of Antwerp, Belgium and the 'Uses of The Past Programme' at Aarhus University, Denmark. His work concentrates on contested official representations of Belgian colonialism and artistic/activist reinterpretations of the colonial past in public spaces in Belgium and DR Congo. He works on an action based research agenda that proposes alternatives to existing heritage practices to improve awareness of, and provoke conversations about, colonial heritage and the continuation of colonial structures in the present.
