If I had written the stories for my documentaries as fiction, nobody would have believed them.
Hjalmar Ilmer graduated as a fiction film director at the Amsterdam film academy. After the academy he worked in various positions within the film industry. For a number of years, he has been fully committed to making documentaries.
What characterizes Hjalmar as a maker is his desire for authenticity. He is interested in what really moves people, what lies beneath the surface? Hjalmar's film Mrs. Faber, premiered at the Dutch Film Festival (NFF) and was selected for a golden calf. Harriette Faber is a special person; touching, light-hearted and a little stubborn.
