Sophie Dros

creates films about rather politically incorrect subjects and lifestyles she feels intrigued by. According to Sophie, the medium film is there to broaden our horizons and helps us learn more about people and subjects we would otherwise never encounter. She finds a special visual narration in documentary crucial. Sophie believes that documentary is more than finding interesting characters or subjects: form and content must meet in order to keep the film challenging to her and her audience.

King of the Cruise (16+)

The Netherlands, 2019, 74 min.
Director: Sophie Dros
Baron Ronald Busch Reisinger of Inneryne spends his time on outrageous cruise ships amongst romantic couples, wealthy families, hardworking staff, and retired elderly. On one such cruise we follow the Baron; parading on the decks in his feudal quilt and king’s cape, he leaves a first impression of being proud and arrogant, bragging about his status, wealth, and extravagant life. But there is something underneath his swagger; a universal human desire for recognition and validation.
