A podcast series by Andrew van der Ven and Elmar ten Kate
The Hague. September 2007. A group of young film makers want to use film as a medium to communicate a major social problem to the public. This film was given the title “Illegaal Verliefd” (Illegally in Love), a love story between a so-called undocumented young woman and a forbidden love.
Soon, the story was embraced by some well-known actors who got prominent roles in the film. It had to be great. The small film project became a real feature film. But that did not happen without a struggle. In fact, the film was never finished and at some point in 2010, the project was abandoned. Nevertheless, we continued to build on the experience of this production. The result: 15 years of ups and downs, extreme highs and deep lows. But all in all, it provided many new experiences.
In this podcast, Andrew van der Ven and Elmar ten Kate take you through their adventures as filmmakers over the past 15 years. Available soon!
