“Het Contract” (“The Contract”), a short thriller I wrote and produced, is finally online! Watch it below, with English subtitles.
Emma, a dissolute young woman with a strong desire to become a mother, has finally found the love of her life to settle down with. When she receives a mysterious postcard her new life is turned upside-down. Her shady past has caught up with her: she has been traced by the company that wants from her what was agreed upon. She’s forced to pay her debt by making an impossible choice.
“The Contract” was written and produced by me, and directed by Tim Klok. It features Charlotte de Moel and Johanna ter Steege. The film was screened at the Nederlands Film Festival 2012 and had its international premiere at Festival de Cannes 2013. The sound design by Frank van Bracht won an award for Best Sound Design at the Eindhoven Film Festival 2014.
