Synopsis


George and Belle are confronted with graphic symbols and letter-forms which have come to life. The apparitions infiltrate their world, disrupt their relationship and become a strange and threatening obsession for them.

Evert de Beijer


Evert de Beijer (Driehuis, 1953) studied graphic design at the Graphic School and the State Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam where he became interested in photography and animated filmmaking. He enrolled at The Netherlands Film and Television Academy to study camera and directing. He gained critical acclaim with his second film The Characters (1986) winning awards in Chicago, Zagreb and Paris, while the Dutch animated film community elected the film as the Best Dutch Animated Film of the 20th Century. Stimulated by this success, he developed his drawing and film style, and acquainted himself with 2D and 3D computer animation graphics and sound. Along with working on his own films, he has coached animated film projects at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and the NIAF ateliers in Tilburg. His films include Get Real! (2010), Car Craze (2003), Hotel Narcis (1994) and Gerard (1979).
