The trailer has been released for Dutch director Paul Ruven’s film about the disappearance of US teenager Natalee Holloway on Aruba in 2005.
The Dutch film about the Natalee Holloway case and the events that transpired in Aruba, Me & Mr Jones, is due to be released in September. It is a fictional reconstruction of events in which an undercover journalist researches the tragedy five years after Holloway disappeared. It stars Emmy-nominated Robert de Hoog (Skin) and Hanna Verboom (Deuce Bigalow) in this English-language film. Me & Mr Jones was filmed in an undisclosed location (because of the highly sensitive subject matter) in Aruba between April and July 2010.
Dutch citizen Joran van der Sloot (23) is still suspected of involvement in the disappearance. He is in prison in Peru facing charges of killing 21-year-old Stephany Flores in Lima last year.
Paul Ruven attended Amsterdam Film School (screenwriting & directing), the Amsterdam Theatre School for Directors, and a UCLA Mastercourse Motion Pictures Division. He has directed plays and several films. His first short film (42 min) was the black and white Pierrot Lunaire, co-directed and co-written by directors Peter Delpeut, Eric de Kuyper, and others, based on Arnold Schoenberg’s musical theatre piece, which won the first prize at the Belfort Film Festival in France. Ruven recently won an Excellence Award at the Canada International Film Festival.
