Lothar from Rascal to World Artist

My mind works in symbols so I used the four elements (water, air, fire and earth) to characterize Lothar’s life. These elements form a base to structure the life of Lothar, someone who is a perfectionist and organized himself.
The film demonstrates the life of Lothar Vigelandzoon. He is a rascal with dyslexia born in Surinam and decides to move to the Netherlands where he creates a successful career at IBM. After working there for 38 years he retires, after which his life takes a surprising turn. Everything changes, Lothar becomes an artist.
‘He who cannot even draw’ - Imro Schoonhoven (friend of Lothar)

Director Biography - Dhiney Ramos

Dhiney Ramos, filmmaker and urban draftsman.
A man of a beautiful dreams that gradually are becoming real.
See life through different eyes.
I did this as a child in Brazil,
Where I was born and grew up.
I built cities of clay,
Played with the leaves of the trees,
Indian tales and legends.
I went to see the lions on safari,
Searched the treasure of the Pharaohs
And one day l went into space.
See life through different eyes.
See the world as a theater.
I recognize the details of each story.
I speak in the visual and symbolic language.
See life through different eyes.
