Ilja Kok works as a producer and a director at Copper Views. Copper Views Film Productions engages with themes like globalisation, us vs them, ethics, power relations, visualisation, reflection and cultural encounters. With their documentaries, they want to make the viewer aware of his or her own thinking about – and relation to – the subject to eventually contribute to a better mutual understanding. Ilja is a true initiator and good at the organisation of and the logistics around a film production. She is also a lecturer in tourism studies and has worked as a tour guide in various countries in the past. The encounters that took place during these tours have triggered her to deepen her knowledge on relationships within tourism.
