Rob Van Eyck (Zichem, 1939) is a Belgian indie director whose biggest successes came with the “Afterman”-trilogy, about a man that survives an apocalypse and ends up all alone on the planet. The original “Afterman” movie was sold in 37 countries and became an underground hit. Van Eyck’s work is often seen as experimental and rather surreal, which gave him a devoted cult following while he stayed virtually unknown with the wide public. Another important work in Van Eyck’s career is the low-budget crime thriller “Blue Belgium”, which was loosely based on the Marc Dutroux case.
