Pierre-Yves Vandeweerd is a Belgian filmmaker. His films are part of the cinéma du réel and have been shot in several regions of the world: in Mauritania (Némadis, des années sans nouvelles / Racines lointaines / Le cercle des noyés), in Western Sahara (Les dormants / Territoire perdu), in the Sudan (Closed district), in France on the Lozère Mountains (Les tourmentes). His latest film, Les éternels was made in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
Filmed for the most part in 16 and super 8 mm film, his documentaries bring together, through a poetic cinematographic gesture, wars and forgotten destinies, the limits of reason, the human condition. They resonate like so many incursions into the confines of reality.http://www.pierreyvesvandeweerd.com/
