Jos de Putter (born 1959) is a dutch filmmaker, whose documentaries have been triumphant at festivals all over the world since his first film It’s been a lovely day (1993). His second documentary Solo, the Law of the Favela (1994) won the Joris Ivens price at the world greatest documentary film festival IDFA. De Putter isn’t a one subject man and he travels after his topics around the world: ”I want to reinvent myself all the time.”
