Ilse van Velzen is a Dutch independent documentary filmmakers (www.ifproductions.nl). For the past 17 years, she, together with er sister Femke van Velzen, have produced and directed our own films in countries like Angola, DRCongo, South Sudan and South Africa.
In January of 2016 we started working on our new documentary ‘Prison for Profit’ (work title), were we follow Ruth Hopkins’ ongoing investigation about the G4S-run Mangaung Prison in South Africa. As filmmakers we are committed to creating maximum impact through our documentaries. This is the reason we started the Private Security Network together with Ruth.
