Into Spring, trailer. Watch the full film here.

Into Spring is a collaboration with drummer/visual artist Han Bennink. The work of Bennink inspired me to create this short visual story that is all about rythm. Woodpeckers, hares and other characters from drawings by Bennink were blended with additional drawings to create a unique and cheerful universe.

Han Bennink and Mary Oliver of ICP Orchestra have created a playful and intuitive soundtrack to the film using a leidmotiv of the famous Mischa Mengelberg. I am very proud that all this could become part of and lift off Into Spring to the world stage of film festivals and galleries.

Included in the list of screenings are the National Gallery in Washington, USA and the International Environment Film Festival in Paris.
