Die Wohnung der Hebamme (The Midwife’s Apartment)

CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION (expected to be finished 2023)
German spoken, English subtitles

A story about voyeurism, heat waves and pedophobia.

Klaus spends his summer holidays in a boiling hot Airbnb apartment in the big city.
He doesn't do much apart from swiping on his phone, warming up microwave meals
and spying on neighbors through a camcorder. The TV is always on in the background,
spreading a constant stream of negativity.

Klaus is scared of kids, so staying in the apartment of a midwife seems like an unlucky
coincidence, which triggers all kinds of questionable behavior and gloomy thoughts.


Pinks (2019)

DE, 110 minutes
(2023 re-cut: 87 minutes)
Dutch spoken, English subtitles

The Netherlands in the year 2363.

Three centuries full of devastating conflicts, extreme climate change and natural disasters
have turned the entire European continent into a nearly deserted wilderness.

The area finds itself in the aftermath of long-lasting colonial oppression,
of which the last convulsions are still tangible. Any form of government is long-gone,
and the only existing law is the law of nature.

The few remaining inhabitants are struggling to survive in this desolate situation,
and when a new group of fortune seekers sets foot ashore, panic breaks out.

These intruders have big plans.


Al Inn (2016)

DE, 48 minutes
Arabic, Italian and Dutch spoken, English subtitles

Al Inn is a no-budget film. It is a combination of collected amateur material and homemade footage
shot with a smartphone. The balance between these two types of imagery is roughly fifty-fifty.

The title refers to both the Eastern and Western way of naming hotels, for example “Al”,
as in “Al Bustan Palace”, a luxurious five-star hotel in Muscat, Oman and “Inn”, as in the
American-owned hotel chain “Holiday Inn”. Next to that it seems like a misspelled version of
the word “all-in”, which refers to the notorious phenomenon of all-inclusive holiday packages,
such as a cruise ship vacation. More freely interpreted; a (one way) trip to heaven.

The film should be seen as an aesthetic collage of contemporary reality. It serves as an ironic
glorification of paradise: on one hand the unearthly, holy, paradise depicted in a dreamlike variety
of visual material, including scenes from modern conflict zones. On the other hand
the earthly paradise, portrayed as life aboard a cruise ship and experienced through
the eyes of Boudewijn, a veteran who lost his wife and kids during the terrorist attacks
in Paris in 2015.
