Nomination TENT Academy Awards 2013
For the Tent Academy Award we’d like to give a honorary mention to:
Rachel Heemskerk for Kijken waar ik niet kijken kan
Rachel has made an intriguing portrait, questioning ways of interviewing in a very personal way. The film is a powerful attempt to get inside the psyche of someone close, without getting there. She uses the camera as psycho-analytical tool, but doesn’t get caught in the therapeutic trap. The structure of the film, which does not take more than 5 minutes, is extremely well balanced. It has emotion without getting over emotional; it gets close by keeping just the right distance both in words and in setting.
