We spent the first Tuesday of our Summer break in a beach screening at pllek's city beach at sundown among friends. SIL VAN DER WOERD & RUTGER HAUER joined us and we screened REQUIEM 2019 a movie directed by Sil & Rutger, followed by PLAN C by Max Porcelijn.
REQUIEM 2019 by Rutger Hauer & Sil van der Woerd
Cast: Rutger Hauer - Man / The Whale | Story by: Rutger Hauer and Sil van der Woerd | Soundtrack : Lolly Jane Blue
The last surviving whale in the oceans meets its greatest enemy, the man.
'The slaughter of whales as a source of food is so outdated. Just because that is what they have always done? Tradition? Come on, now! People are the worst type of animal. One day, during a trip in a canoe, I literally looked straight into the eye of a whale. It is something that every man on Earth should experience. We must not be allowed to destroy these beautiful creatures. The consequences would be enormous. This is how we got around to the theme for Requiem 2019. Sil and I simply had to make something to stop people hunting down these wonderful creatures. I can’t go along with Sea Shepherd during their campaign. It’s better for me to do what I do best, and here it is!' Rutger Hauer
PLAN C by Max Porcelijn
Cast: René van ‘t Hof, Ruben van der Meer, Ton Kas | Story by: Max Porcelijn | NL w/ ENG subtitles
