NFF Archive

You are now in the NFF Archive. The archive contains contains information on film, TV and interactive productions that were screened at past festival editions. The NFF does not dispose of this material. For this, please contact the producer, distributor or broadcaster. Sometimes, older films can also be found at the Eye Film Museum or the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.

The fascinations of filmmaker, writer and artist Peter Greenaway can be perfectly captured in an alphabet, a form cut out for this encyclopaedist. In sometimes playful, sometimes serious conversations with his astute 16-year-old daughter Zoë – filmed by his wife – the family gets through to Greenaway's core. This results in an idiosyncratic portrait about creativity, collector’s mania and life’s obstacles. An artist, father, husband, man and human being fighting with his diminishing time.
