Boudewijn de Groot - Kom nader

DOCUMENTARY WORK

In this documentary Dutch artist Boudewijn de Groot says goodbye on stage to his hits and he works on new, often very personal songs. For the first time, he allows a camera to come behind the scenes and into his private space. His children and his friends reflect on half a century of his life and career, and they wonder at how Boudewijn has remained such as mystery, even to them. The film goes on a musical road trip through time and sets out to discover who this introverted man really is.

Directed by Suzanne Raes. Shot by Benito Strangio. Graded at Loods Lux & Lumen.
