Weeën nominated for a ‘Gouden Kalf’!
Great news! Weeën, the short film written and directed by Nils Wings was nominated last night for a Golden Calf in the Short Film category. In one month, the ceremony will be held at the Dutch Film Festival gala. From the jury report: This short film offers a very own and consistent world in design. And a tremendously witty lead player with which the jury could easily identify.
The point of view of a man at an upcoming birth is a original choice. The short film begins realistically but works its way up to the fever dreams of the main character. This has been convincing, partly due to the strong camera work. The humor comes from the situation and never feels imposed or sought. Weeën feels in a subtle and thoughtful way, the fears of an upcoming father, and leave us - even after the baby is born - with an ominous feeling.
