Welcome to Sondr!

As a 100% Belgian and independent post-production studio, we are a passionate collective with over a decade of experience and a wealth of knowledge in the art of post-production. The word "Sonder" encapsulates our belief in the realization that everyone has a unique story, and at Sondr, we are here to bring those stories to life.

What Makes Us Boys is a poetic documentary film about two young brothers who grow up in a Dutch suburb. Despite the fights they have sometimes, they know they can't live without each other. Daan is Sam's big brother, someone he looks up to. Sam is Daan's little brother, with whom he shares everything. They are both dealing with things kids their age aren't supposed to worry about. Daan has a rare illness which prevents him doing things other kids can do, while Sam is struggling with his identity as he used to be a girl named Mara.
