My film Vogel Vrij (English title 'Bird Strike') will be broadcast by VARA on NPO 3 sunday the 14th of February at 23:40.
Synopsis: In Bird Strike, we see how man and animal must share the air space and the resulting consequences. In this visual story different characters struggle with their curious relationship with unpredictable flying troublemakers. Will man manage to get his own way, or will nature have the final say in this battle for the skies?
This documentary has been breeding in my head since 2010, but last year with much help from Willem Baptist and Nienke Korthof it was accepted for realization by VARA. The production was one hell of a turbulent flight (pun intended) but in the end I am proud of the result. I hope you watch it and enjoy it!
