Ivan is a drone pilot trying to find new purpose in life after accidentally bombing a school. Delving into the troubled mind of a soldier racked with guilt, this contemporary tale is less about war and more about the way technology has drastically changed how we live and interact with each other and reality.

- Olivier Père, Director of ARTE France Cinéma -

David Verbeek

David Verbeek graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam in 2005 and then studied philosophy and photography in New York. Afterwards he left for China, and filmed R U THERE in Taiwan, which was then shown in the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes. FULL CONTACT is his 6th feature film.

Throughout my films it has always been my goal to capture die zeitgeist, the spirit of the time, if you will. To somehow express what defines the challenges of people of a certain place at a certain time. Our time.
