Mildred Roethof is an engaged creative filmmaker and director. Mildred was born in the Netherlands and spent her teenage years in Paramaribo, Surinam. In the South American rainforests her love for nature wildlife and different cultures got triggered. She met with indigenous people, The Marrons in the rainforests and with many different cultures in Paramaribo. When she returned to Amsterdam, she studied at the social academy, driven by her passion for people and social injustice. Today she has been working in television and media for over 25 years and has a wealth of expertice in the field of concepting, making and presenting TV programs, documentaries and opinionated journalism TV reports. She is particularly interested in social cultural and conservational issues. With her films, she wants to create awareness and show themes which are most of the time left unseen to the larger public.
The results are exciting films, documentaries and stories which were never been told before or broadcasted on National TV, such as her documentaries about elephants in Sri Lanka, ‘sexual behavior among youngsters’ and ‘crime by young girls’. The government and people of NGO’s realised that youngsters need more education and information about these subjects.
In the meantime, she also presented the succesful TV program ‘Tros Regelrecht’, with 1 > million viewers, during which a team amongst which Mildred as well as the former Minister of Crime (Mr. Ivo Opstelten), tried to solve various social problems.
