De eenzame eenheid
I am a modest fountain, a constant flow of ideas. While most ideas disappear, some images in my mind remain without having a clear reason to do so – their origins unknown. You would think that there has to be a reason why these ideas find a place in my mind. It’s these kind of absurdities that always fascinate me, the ones that are there but have and need no explanation. By carefully dissecting all these ideas, nine separate scenes found their commencement in what would be my graduation film De eenzame eenheid.
The quest to find the interrelationship of ideas resulted in the associative storyline of the film. What feels logical while watching the film, is hard to explain subsequently. The colourful images embody my inner world, a mix of feelings that is hard to put your finger on by trying to explain. The challenge is to extract the images from my head and reconstruct them as precisely as possible in reality. By acting in my own film I can experience my ideas and dreams directly. In the final film these dreams become even more clear then they once where inside of my imagination.
