CERES is a poetic yet tangible documentary film that follows four children as they experience the natural cycle of life on a farm. Each child lives on a remote farm in the southwest of The Netherlands and is learning the profession of their ancestors from a young age. They each dream that one day they will take over the farms of their father or grandfather.
Although this dream is never doubted, as they reach the early years of puberty the outside world begins to intrude on their universe. As the seasons go by, crops are sown and harvested, and animals are born and slaughtered. The children are confronted with the volatility of nature, the threat of extreme weather conditions and the cycle of life and death.
CERES is not only a narrative about life on a farm, it is also a story about dreams and isolation, and most importantly, about growing up. An intimate portrait of four children, the documentary explores the world through their eyes and examines their relationship to nature and human society. This is a universal story that will reach a place in the heart of everyone.

The Left bank in Antwerp is a suburb at the other side of the river. This piece of land, surrounded by highways and a river, is the perfect wasteland for architects, policymakers and property developers. Filling up a blank piece of paper with lines and shapes, creating a whole city, building it and filling it up with people… Isn’t that the ultimate dream of every modernist?

Bedtime stories for fading stars tells the story of men in search for their place in the universe. Astronomy is a scientific field that challenges humans more than others. We look at the most powerful telescopes at the universe and observe phenomena’s that are situated thousands of light years away. Unfortunately, our understanding of the universe doesn’t evolve as quickly the power of our observations. The most important question stays unanswered, are we alone in the universe.
