Eddy Terstall debuted his first film Transit in 1992.
He started Political Science and Sociology studies at the University of Amsterdam, but didn’t finish.
He follows politics closely and considered joining the political world at one point.
His 2004 film Simon won four Golden Calves and is said to be the first instalment from a series of three films focusing on freedoms: death, sexuality and rule of law.
The other two were Sextet (2007) and Vox Populi (2008).
Terstall’s first collaboration with Erik Wünsch resulted in Meet me in Venice, World Cinema Award at Woodstock Film Festival for Best Foreign Film and Best Actress in a Leading Role (Roberta Petzoldt) and the second in Eddy’s upcoming film: Alberta, set to be released this year.
