PIERRE DE VILLIERS

“Nothing without a reason” is the adage that Pierre De Villiers lives and creates by. A fan of finding the why behind every decision, his images are provocative and always strive to explore new ways of looking at the world.

His latest short film ‘Mthunzi’ premiered at the Locarno Film Festival & screened at myriad festivals globally picking up the Jury Award for Best Short film at AFI & ‘Best Cinematography’ at the European Awards. His second feature film ‘This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection’, which was shot entirely in the remote mountains of Lesotho, premiered at the Venice International Film Festival 2019 & won the Sundance Special Jury Visionary Award in 2020.
