De Ontmoeting - Jerry

Director: Rutger van Leeuwen
Short film about an unexpected connection between father and son. When Jerry (23) moves in with his father, who suffers from dementia, as an informal caregiver, music turns out to be the great connecting factor.
When Jerry (23) moves in with his father who suffers from dementia, the young man initially has problems with his role as an informal caregiver. After all, his life as a DJ in the city looked quite different. When one day he delves into his father’s record case, one of the latter’s old pop records from the 1980s turns out to be the ultimate source of samples. And before he knows it, a deeper connection with his father than ever before evolves.
