See my short film “Fascination” at Rotterdams Open Doek

slider-fascination“Fascination”, a short experimental film I made some time ago, is one of my favorite film projects so far. So I am very proud it will be screened at LantarenVenster (Rotterdam) on December 10, as part of the Rotterdams Open Doek programme. “Fascination” will be shown alongside a selection of cool shorts from other Rotterdam-based filmmakers.

“Fascination” stars the wonderful Jorien van der Keijl, who performs what I call an inverse striptease. The gorgeous styling and makeup were done by Elseline Hokke, who also co-produced the film. The camera was operated by Rinaldo Tromp. The project was kindly supported by the city of The Hague, Labs55, and Massive Productions.
