— Lust —
A film inspired by Hugo Claus capturing the suffocating life in a catholic environment.
Fifty years ago, 'De Oostakkerse gedichten' by Hugo Claus was published for the first time under the title 'Nota's voor een Oostakkerse cantate' in the magazine
Tijd en Mens.
The first cycle of the poem collection describes the suffocating life in a catholic environment: sexual desires were a taboo but the need for intercourse was natural for humans.
Poetry, Hugo Claus
The film visualizes the need of intercourse by combining two elements: layered images from nature. The nature represents the natural need while the layers represent two individuals that are chasing for each other.
