In deze korte documentaire neemt filmmaker Pascale Korteweg je mee naar het Kralingse atelier waar kunstenaar Woody van Amen al sinds de zestiger jaren werkt. Heden en verleden verbroederen in deze fascinerende ruimte waar scheppingsdrang, tijd en verzamelingen allen een even grote rol spelen. Dit is de plek waar we toegang krijgen tot zijn universum en het is de broedplaats voor zijn meest recente project: de tentoonstelling in museum Beelden aan Zee.

A few days in Melaka, Malaysia

Sharin (left), 21 years and Amier (right), 23 years are friends for already a long time. While the sun was going down they were posing a few minutes for me in front of the little beach in Melaka. Amier is the proud owner of his car. He afforded to buy himself this Mitsubishi by working as a security agent in a hotel. Sharin works as a contractor in the oil and gas business. Just a month ago this young man had a serious accident with his motorbike. Now he’s carrying for the rest of his life a piece of steel in one of his legs. He told me the sad news, he’s never able to walk without his crutches again.
