CURRENT PROJECTS

The Hague Hilton is a battlefield. Not with guns and mortars, but with sandwiches, dirty laundry and clay sculptures. It is an arena where the men will have to secure their place over and over again. The prisoners have no place where they are safe; not in their room, not with their compatriots. They are always on guard and can not let their vigilance down. Although the Yugoslav civil war has stopped, the struggle within the prison walls continues. The men are no longer fighting cities, villages and enclaves but for their position at the breakfast table.


Poul, guard in the ICTY Detention Unit in The Hague, values his neutrality. This is being compromised when he gets caught up in a ruthless power game between the detainees.

Summer 1974. The city is empty, all friends are on holiday, classmates Daan and Jonas (both 12 years), not friends, have to get by with each other, but their head is full of Heleen, who's gone - and not on holiday.
