It is this simple scene that sparked the idea for a short film. With ZONDER MEER I wanted to make a film in which a tragedy unfolds in the margins, even out of frame. By witnessing a drama through the eyes of a child, I would like to give the viewers an opportunity to experience it through the perception of someone who does not yet understand it in a dramatic way.
Shot in between two lockdowns, we were challenged with a lot of restrictions. But restrictions often gift a great deal of liberty. By making straightforward narrative and formalistic choices, I aim to create a space for the viewer to wander.
