About the Director

Fien Troch (Belgium, 1978) is a multiple-award-winning Flemish director. She graduated from the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels in 2000, where she also taught. She wrote and directed a number of short films that put her on the map. Her first feature film, Een ander zijn geluk (SOMEONE ELSE'S HAPPINESS, 2005) deals with a community's response to a hit-and-run incident in which a child is killed. Three years later, Fien was selected to spend time at the Cannes Cinéfondation's Résidence du Festival, during which time she made her second feature film, the love drama UNSPOKEN (2008), about the sudden disappearance of a little girl. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and was also shown at the San Sebastian and Ghent film festivals. In 2011, she made her third feature film, KID, the emotionally charged tale of a seven-year-old farmer's son.
