Irma Oldenburg 2018
In the documentary Healer-Dealer (2018) Irma Oldenburg portraits a Dutch rebel who declared himself a sovereign citizen living within a like-minded community in Portugal. As a 'Tachyon Energy' facilitator he provides clients with alternative energy healing sessions. He supports numerous conspiracy theories believing Donald Trump will protect the world from a corrupt satanic elite. Oldenburg follows the consequences of his self-declared freedom.
Irma Oldenburg [NL] is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. She creates documentaries, short narrative films and video installations. Much of her work delves into the psychology of manipulation and rhetorical structures of storytelling. A recurring theme of her work is the longing for "a bigger other". This bigger other comes in different forms but always has a guiding role in a character's decisions.
