A father and a daughter have lived at odds for years. He lives in a gated and secure community where people like him have retreated in response to changing society. She has embraced and helped shape that society. In everything, they are diametrically opposed. But what if you can no longer avoid each other?
A political couple in crisis at the height of power. How sustainable are our ideals if they don’t move us forward and make the world a better place? What are we giving up in our lives and for whom?
Three women who no longer want to wait, but do. In search of new (political) inspiration. And that is sometimes closer than you think.
No one is waiting for you
If you do not step into the arena yourself
then someone else will take your place
and you will be on the sideline shouting what needs to be done better.
Two sisters, Kat and Sis, are in a police cell on suspicion of a hit and run after a fatal accident. In the police cel next to them sits Ge, an eccentric former cell biologist, who witnesses the accident. Is his testimony credible? Or does the truth not exist?
Can you love someone whose ideas you reject?
A father and a daughter have lived at odds for years. Hij is een trotse bejaarde met een groot ego en woont in een afgesloten en beveiligde enclave waar mensen zoals hij – wit, succesvol en ooit invloedrijk – zich hebben teruggetrokken in reactie op de veranderde samenleving. She has embraced and helped shape that society. She rejects everything he stands for. Hij verwijt haar een gevaarlijk idealisme, Zij verwijt hem superioriteit denken. In everything, they are diametrically opposed. The separation seems unbridgeable. In BLIND, two worldviews collide in an originally strong family relationship.
NO ONE IS WAITING FOR YOU
‘It’s not about the critic who stands on the sidelines shouting. It’s about the one in the arena, actually doing something and daring to make mistakes in an effort to achieve something.’ Based on Theodore Roosevelt
We live in a time in which we have more and more sight into what’s happening in the world. In the media, news reports and opinions on burning issues pass by at a rapid pace. Some shout louder than others, and listening seems more difficult than ever. We agree on one thing: change is needed. But where do we start? How do you turn your opinion into action? And with whom does the responsibility really lie; with the citizen or with politicians?
About real and unreal, about true and false, and about who and what determines your value.
In False, two sisters are arrested, one a lauded stage actress and the other a famous television soap actress. They are accused of a hit and run after a fatal accident.

But is this testimony accurate, can the witness be trusted and how honest are the two sisters really, both to each other and to themselves?
About a man and a woman who have lost a child, then themselves and finally each other.
Ten years after their separation, a man and a woman meet again for the first time, at the place where their only child is buried. He lives in France and has built a new life there; she has stayed in their home and cannot bear the thought of a new life. The reason for their meeting is a letter announcing the reburial of their child because poison was found in the soil. How do you deal with loss and grief when the world wobbles beneath your feet?
‘Is there anyone? Now here. Who dares to say, My name is Judas and I am proud of that.’
For more than two thousand years, no parent has called their child Judas. Why did that name become an icon of betrayal? Did Judas really want to put Jesus to death? What were his motives when he gave the fatal kiss? Judas speaks for the first time himself. He tells us about his plans to improve the world. About his life, his friendship with Jesus, the betrayal and the shame. He also confronts us with the Judas in ourselves. For what are we capable of when pushed to our limits?
“A monologue of an anti-hero. An icon for all those people who don’t think in grand ideals, but in small interests and desires, where emotional motives always prevail over the ideological.”
The story of Ismene who has always lived in the shadow of her heroic and world-famous sister Antigone. A woman who has no right to exist on her own because she has never done anything great or memorable. A woman who is ashamed of who she is and how she has been. Because our heroes are people who do things, not people who let things. Thousands of years after her death, she begins to speak, somewhere in a place where time no longer counts.
