First feature film about a filmmaker who reflects on his life.

First feature film of Paul and Menno de Nooijer Exit is a flashback by a man of fifty. He remembers the moment when, as a young photographer, he was realising an exhibition of his own artistic work when he was unexpectedly commissioned to make a music video. The offer at first seems like the answer to his financial and personal woes, but during the preparations, a childhood trauma he has not come to terms with ensures unexpected complications and everything threatens to turn into a fiasco. 'Exit can be regarded as an appeal for the preservation of originality and artistic freedom. Feelings of hope, love, the will to create end up lying on the rack of reality.'
