In his work he breaks down expectations that are evoked by exterior characteristics. With him, identity and sexuality are not exchangeable. In his observations he is not moralistic and he uses humour in order to underline the seriousness of the matters he broaches. He looks at the world from the perspective of one whom the outside world makes into what and who he is not, and in the process he wonders how you can be yourself in that situation. Besides his films he also makes drawings and paintings. His work can hardly be called narrative, but it does have a beginning and an end. That is to say, his work is put together like a snake biting its own tail. Rogier Roeters bites off your head.
