Around the deathbed of father Theo, several of his family members gather. The situation weighs heavily on them and puts a strain on their interactions. Will they manage to get closer together and support each other when it comes down to it?
In the new Branded Cinema production Naar Huis [Going Home], director Harrie Verbeek and choreographer Jelena Kostić, after their previous collaboration on Interlude, once again bring dormant emotions to the surface in a powerful and sensitive dance film.
Actors Huub Smit, Hans Dagelet, Liz Snoijink and Beaudil Elzenga and dancers Patricia van Deutekom, Kim-Jomi Fischer and Rowan van den Boomen portray the troubled family members. The combination of Jelena Kostić’s poetic dance language and Harrie Verbeek’s subtle, natural cinematography guarantees a poignant and moving ‘Brabantse Beauty’.
This film was made in 2018, and was awarded the Publieksprijs at the Zuidelijk Film Festival 2021
