Docu­men­tary about two young women who cannot speak.
Sprek­ende ogen (Eloquent Eyes) is a docu­men­tary about two women. Nathalie (22) can only move her head and can’t talk. She speaks with her expres­sive eyes, that can say more than words. With her hair bleached blond and a pref­er­ence for house music, she is someone who knows what she wants. Nicole (23) can’t talk either. She has recently had her leg straight­ened in the hope that she will be able to walk better. The two women live with two others in a unique project het Bolwerk’ in Hoorn. All four have sepa­rate apart­ments with 24-hour care. Het Bolwerk offers them an oppor­tu­nity to shape their own lives.
