Friday January the 26th my new short film Als je terugkomt woon ik aan het water
premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam. This short film is about the clash between an ambitious architect and his passionate client during the creative process of designing a perfect home. The film is a meticulous ode to an imaginary space built on conflicting interests, unanswered desires and fallen dreams. For a whole year I filmed at the eco-friendly residential area EVA-Lanxmeer in Culemborg. The fictionale tale, written by Dutch poet and actor Ramsey Nasr, was inspired by Adriaan Roland Holst's poem 'Laatste brief' - 'Last Letter'. The film will be screened during Arquiteturas (6-8 June), the Architecture Film Festival in Lisbon, set up by Sofia Mourato.
Als je terugkomt woon ik aan het water
(When you return I'll be living by the waterside
) will be distributed by the Eye Film Institute as part of the Korte Film Poule.
