Who are we

We are the brothers Henry en Joshua Timisela. Also known as The Brothers Timisela. Founders of the movie project ‘MalukuCinema’. How it all started? At the beginning of summer 2010 we decided to do something together. Joshua: “I always had the desire to make a movie.”

And when I suggested the idea to my brother, he responded really excited. Henry: “In the past we have always made sketches to entertain our family, but to really put something together proved to be an exciting challenge.” Many ideas arose at the table and gradually the story of STERK (2010) emerged.

Fortunately we both have experience in various areas. Among other things Henry has experience in the area of journalism: “I’ve worked as a media coach, (photo)journalist and radio reporter.”

In addition, in the last couple of years Henry worked as a teacher in various media courses.

Joshua has especially gained a lot of movie experience. He played major roles in the TV movies Skin (Hanro Smitsman, 2008) and Wijster (Paula van der Oest, 2008).

And in the most-watched TV movie of all time called De Punt (Hanro Smitsman, 2009), he fulfilled one of the main roles. This movie received the prestigious Silver Medal Award 2010 in New York.

In 2011 we received the Hasan Kaynak Award for our movie Sterk. It’s an award to encourage integration, participation and emancipation which was rewarded by Elan Expertisecentrum in Arnhem. We are currently working on the movie ‘Jefta’ and we have international ambitions with this production.

Meanwhile, project ‘Jefta’ is growing, we work with a staff of five people and a production crew to realize this movie. (July 2013)
