Special mention video

Video multimedia documentary portraits/lyrical family autobiography

Filmaker.

The mother of the filmmaker tells about how her life went when she first came to live in a poorly maintained canal house in Amsterdam fifty years ago. The rapid career of the father; the dramatic separation; her four children she raised alone; she tries to remember the whole story. But she doesn’t want her face in the picture and there are only a few photo’s. Her story is however told in a visual manner using unorthodox reconstruction techniques.
