Number fourteen, home / Nummer veertien, home
(NLD 2012, 4k DCP, 54 Min., enOF)
In his film Nummer veertien, home, Dutch artist, composer and Iron Man Guido van der Werve swims, bikes and runs nearly 1,200 miles following Frédéric Chopin’s steps, from Warsaw’s Church of the Holy Cross to the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris. A cinematic vision about longing, homesickness and death, gorgeously melancholy, occasionally flakey, intermittently batty.
