Short film - 2018 - 25 min.
Elias is eleven, likes to romp and looks up to David, which makes him an easy victim of the latter’s sexual petting. Eventually, David is confronted with the inevitable consequences of his actions, which have serious repercussions for himself, but also for the people around him. This calmly painted portrait examines ‘the other side of the story’, because the maker puts himself in the culprit’s shoes. From this position, without judging but also without justifying anything, he gives a reflection on the issue of sexual abuse.

Levenslessen van Cartoon-Box
What good the various life lessons of Cartoon-Box will do us is the question, but what is sure is these terribly comical sketches tickle our funny bones.
The tears of a heartbroken young man create a monster out of pizza scraps in this equally unsavoury and critical look at unhealthy relationships. Featuring an unrecognisable Sallie Harmsen.
Janelle Monáe - Pynk
Uninhibited, cheery tribute to female sexuality, set in a pink oasis in the desert. Pay attention to the ‘vagina pants’, specially made for this video by Dutch fashion designer Duran Lantink.
Stirring, minimalistic animation about making choices. With his self-centred decision, the protagonist not only causes chaos in his own life, but also in other people’s lives.
De Ontmoeting - Hou vast
Dark comedy about a window cleaner whose life is hanging by a thread. Will he live to tell? This partly depends on the time it takes to charge an iPhone...
In this short animation film, a young desert dweller has to follow the footprints his fellow tribesmen left behind in the sand.
