About Hans Busstra

Journalist and Filmmaker

Hans Busstra is a journalist and filmmaker. He holds a MA degree in International Relations (University of Groningen) and graduated in documentary filmmaking at the Dutch Film Academy in Amsterdam. He has worked for numerous public broadcasters in The Netherlands (VPRO, KRO, NCRV, EO) with a special focus on science and technology and his documentaries are being screened on international festivals and platforms such as IDFA, and Amazon Prime. His VPRO Backlight documentary ‘Zero Days’ on the legal trade in security leaks led to parliamentary questions in The Netherlands, and his investigation on how ISIS recruits online, ‘Cyberjihad’, was the Dutch submission to the Emmy Awards in 2017. In 2020 he made ‘Technology as a religion’, a critical documentary on the materialist assumptions of the proponents of conscious AI. The documentary featured interviews with Roger Penrose, James Lovelock and Bernardo Kastrup. As a follow up to this documentary he is currently working in collaboration with Essentia Foundation to research a new documentary on the potential of idealism to replace materialism as our mainstream worldview. His research findings will be published as articles and a podcast series on the Essentia Foundation platform.
