Join Eline Jongsma and Kell O'Neill Monday November 11th for a " live screening" of Empire: The Unintended Consequences of Dutch Colonialism at REDCAT/CALARTS in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale at redcat.org.

Shot in ten countries over four years, Empire employs a broad range of storytelling techniques—including nonfiction filmmaking, multi- channel video projection, and experience design—to unearth the contemporary aftershocks of the world's first brush with global capitalism

A hidden synagogue in the mountains of Indonesia. A Dutch-style village in the Sri Lankan rainforest. A white separatist enclave in the South African desert. These are just a few of the communities brought to light in Empire, an immersive documentary project that examines the still-unfolding legacy of Dutch colonialism. Shot in ten countries over four years, Empire employs a broad range of storytelling techniques—including nonfiction filmmaking, multi- channel video projection, and experience design—to unearth the contemporary aftershocks of the world's first brush with global capitalism.

Jongsma+O’Neill are Eline Jongsma & Kel O’Neill, a trans-Atlantic filmmaking team. They have worked as a two-person crew since 2006, and are responsible for every aspect of Empire’s production, from research to shooting and editing.

The LA Times recently asked if interactive documentaries like Empire are film's future. Read the entire article by right here.
