Paradise Regained

Most of the reviews of this poem describe a longing for a intense and intensive life. Marsman was a Dutch representative of the expressionism and vitalism. This film is made for the series "Classic Dutch poems." In this project 10 classic Dutch poems were translated to animation film. The artwork for the film is inspired by the German expressionism by Franz Marc and symbolism by Odilon Redon. These artists formed an inspiration for Marsman.

The Story of a Flying Carpet in Zwolle

The Story of a Flying Carpet in Zwolle

Somewhere in the backyard of a house in Zwolle, a Persian carpet has been nailed down to a sitting area. Below the carpet are being kept the mysteries, history and the tales of an Iranian family while above the carpet the family's cultural evolution continues. Every first Sunday of the month the family Yousef Doust is meeting in order to enjoy each others company, talk and share happiness and sadness with each other.
