About Rode Gordijnen (Red Curtains)
'Rode Gordijnen' is a film about a man who tries to breathe new life into his out of touch relationship with his wife. Both characters seem to have reconciled themselves to their extinguished marriage: they have simply stopped communicating. But along the way their attitude towards each other, and towards their surroundings, changes substantially. One thing however remains the same: they still don’t talk.
Rode Gordijnen (Red Curtains) is a short film by two enthusiastic initiators: director and producer Richard Valk and cameraman Feek Zonderland. This project is realised with the support of the experienced film producer Margot Nicolaes.
In 1992 Richard started his company Valk producties. Initially as director but later also as a producer. He started out with television programmes as Lolapaloeza, Jules Unlimited, 2 Meter Sessions and various short and longer fiction films and documentaries. He is now director and producer of fiction, nonfiction, animation and music production.
In 2010 Freek started his film production company FreekFilms, and he is attracting much attention ever since. He operates in very different fields, and works, among other things, for the VPRO, a Dutch national station. Shooting fiction is his real passion.
Richard and Freek worked together on a film already once before. This collaboration worked out so well that they decided to gather together the same enthusiastic crew in order to make the short film Rode Gordijnen (Red Curtains)
