Het zit in mijn hart

Director: Saskia Boddeke
This film about ánd with professional actors with an intellectual disability hovers somewhere between the magic of an opera and the profundity of a documentary. About independence and power, dreams and desires.
Theatre group KamaK consists of actors with an intellectual disability. Their stage performance Furia, a baroque fairy-tale in rhyme about murder, manslaughter and eroticism, was grandly adapted for this film. The fact that it is a blend of documentary and fiction is something the protagonists have to remind themselves of too sometimes. The sharp contrast between the two is blithely made palpable with fantasy and an array of cinematographic means. While the film follows the making of the theatre show, it is gradually clear why director Saskia Boddeke calls attention to the way we often patronise disabled people.
