The documentaries cover subjects such as the international motorcycle gang Satudarah, elderly transgenders (I am a Woman Now), the murder of Barnett Newman’s famous piece of art Who's afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue (The End of Fear) or the vice-president of the European Commission Frans Timmermans. Since 2014 we also produce feature fiction films and drama series.
