After half a century, an old birdwatcher’s happy life is disrupted because his post is cancelled. He refuses to leave and finds a unique way to resist. Tragicomic feature film with a leading role for cabaret performer Freek de Jonge.
An old man has been living all alone on an island full of birds in the middle of the ocean for half a century. He is very content there, as a birdwatcher without any people around him. One day, he receives a message telling him his post will be terminated. His happy life in the wild threatens to end abruptly. But the dismissed birdwatcher refuses to leave and defies this decision in a way uniquely his own. Tragicomic feature film with a leading role for Freek de Jonge, and beautiful wildlife shots of all sorts of birds.
A documentary by Johan Kramer.
Theatrical version mixed at STMPD
They are the team’s outcasts, the only ones on the football field who can touch the ball with their hands. Alone in a goal, their uniform is even marked in a different colour than the rest of the team. Unravelling the mysteries of the keeper, director Johan Kramer spent a season on Dutch amateur football pitches to observe the most curious personality in the sport.
‘Keeper’ is a nuanced and at times humorous psychological search for the motivation and wavering character traits of these solitary troopers.
Premiered at NFF 2019 and was awarded the prestigious Critics Choice at the same festival.

Amsterdam Sound Designer Marcel Walvisch dropped by at our Mix Stage to mix the trailer for Drama Girl
By re-enacting key scenes from her recent past, ‘Drama Girl’ gives a young woman (Leyla de Muynck) the chance to come to terms with certain events. Leyla (26) is the protagonist in a film based on her own life story. The director, Vincent, surrounds her with professional actors: Pierre Bokma plays her father, Elsie de Brauw her mother, Jonas Smulders her boyfriend. Together they explore how people, according to psychological theory, compile a certain image of their own story – and how that image gets rearranged when a trauma occurs. As she rakes over the past with them, the film probes the question of how drama, as a genre, can help us better understand ourselves and the world around us.
