Rose Rebel Productions Ltd. is a social enterprise, a film & multimedia production company committed to promoting an idea of  common humanity through the visual arts, film and photography.

Rose Rebel Productions is born out of my two passions: acting & sociology.

After studying globalisation and culture for my PhD. , I realized that we will face an era of the coming together of humankind into one society. In a theoretical article,  I called this all-inclusive society ‘The Pananthropoi’ (‘All-Humanity’) in analogy with the Pangea (All-Earth), the original super-continent.

However, this movement towards common humanity will inevitably give rise to opposing tendencies: division and withdrawal into national identities.

I chose to make art and film about subject that voice a sense of unity and common humanity.


I have always been interesting in crossing borders, of disciplines, of science, art, but also literally. I love to travel and have lived in Dublin, New York, London and my hometown, Amsterdam and the city where I was born, Groningen.

I obtained a cum laude MA in sociology from the University of Groningen. I  hold a PhD. in sociology from Trinity College Dublin. My research has won several prizes including the Boekman Award, Prince Bernhard Award, Full Scholarship of the Royal Irish Academy and the WSF-Prize awarded by the World Society Foundation of the University of Zurich.

The full text of my article ‘Pananthropoi – Towards a Society of All Humanity‘ in the Globality Studies Journal can be found here: Pananthropoi – Van Der Bly (2013).
