Everyone is wearing a mask in daily life. With her documentaries, Apollonia wants to give a sincere image of the people in her films, an image in which for a moment they take off that mask. She believes she can do this best by intervening with reality. It fascinates her to create conditions and see what comes out of that. This means, for example, her putting boys together in places she’s chosen and letting them talk about subjects she has chosen.
Apollonia creates documentaries but tries to experiment with its boundaries. She hopes to renew conventions within documentary filmmaking. Human behaviour fascinates and the way we act towards one another fascinate her. With her work she tries to open conversations.
