R.I.P.: Wouter Barendrecht (1965 - 2009)

From Eugene Hernandez at IndieWire: "Wouter Barendrecht, the co-chairman of leading international sales and production company Fortissimo Films has died, his passing coming as a tremendous shock today to many close friends and colleagues in the international film community... It’s impossible to immediately assess and convey the significance of Wouter Barendrecht’s numerous accomplishments in international film, but perhaps his greatest professional achievement is the invaluable role he played as a tireless champion of Asian cinema and as a stalwart supporter of independent, queer and international film."
