Mieke Briers

  • BIOGRAPHY:

Mieke Briers (1991°, Hasselt, Belgium) is a Belgian female film director known from shortfilms as FEMALE/UNKNOWN (2017) and Junk of The Heart (2015). Mieke graduated her masters and bachelorstudies in audio-visual arts with distinction at LUCA School of Arts: Sint Lukas Brussel.

At the age of 14, she studied audio-visual practice at high school Kunstschool Genk. Through these studies she came in touch with the art of photography and video.  Although her work at that time was more focused on video installation and documentary, a change took place when she studied at LUCA School of arts: Sint Lukas Brussel. She then devoted herself creating fictional short films.

She explores themes such as sexuality, obsession, identity, gender and emotional processing.
Her biggest influences can be found in the works from Lars von Trier, Jonathan Glazer and Ingmar Bergman.
