HENK 23th of November 2019 in the program of Nordic Focus and Friends / Shorts


Program: http://festival.tanzrauschen.institute/Program/Films

Henk leads an idiosyncratic and eccentric life. When a young woman unexpectedly enters into his world, he is forced to face the confrontation.


An man getting on in years lives as a recluse with his own set of rules and rituals. When an intrepid young woman suddenly comes into his world is his world not only turned upside down but also enriched. She provokes him and she is not afraid of the unknown. He finds it difficult with her being nearby and with the changes this involves. In a world in which the other is often seen as a stranger  “HENK” makes a case for all of us to accept each other unconditionally for who we are: “He alone is only truly himself next to another” Rilke
