Theodoor "Theo" van Gogh (23 July 1957 – 2 November 2004) was a Dutch director and film and television producer, actor and author. He directed "Submission: Part 1", a short film written by Somali writer and political Ayaan Hirsi Ali, which criticized the treatment of women in Islam. On 2 November 2004, van Gogh was assassinated by Mohammed Bouyeri, a Dutch-Moroccan Muslim who objected to the film.

The last film van Gogh had completed before his death, 06/05, was a fictional exploration of the assassination of Pim Fortuyn (1948–2002), a Dutch politician and critic of Islam and Islamization.
