In 'dutch perspective'

Allotment

Allotment

The allotment is one of the places that largely goes unnoticed by the majority of Dutch people. Ben van Lieshout previously made short, stylised documentaries about similar places: remote corners of industrial estates used for prostitution and a large shopping centre. In Allotment, he sings the praises of these small pieces of land seen from the perspective of the satisfied gardeners and poets such as Rutger Kopland, Gerrit Kouwenaar and Adriaan Jaeggi.

Andrew Reid

Andrew Reid

Rietveld Academy student Pablo Pijnappel made a fake documentary about the nonexistent Andrew Reid. The director tries endless telephone calls to get in touch with Reid. The film is made up of these telephone conversations, the texts of which can be read against a black background. In addition, we see meticulously selected fragments from film classics. In this way. it is possible to make a portrait of an imaginary freebooter in just over half an hour.
