Zie mij doen (Watch Me)

Directed by Klara Van Es, 2018

Main Info

Creative documentary, Belgium


How do people with a disability look at themselves, at each other and at us? And how do we look at them? In a poetic black and white, we peek inside the minds of Nadine, Sofie, Sam, Quan, Mathias and Jessica, who all live in a care center for people with reduced mental possibilities. While they unravel their emotions over the course of 1 year’s time, they teach us about the world and especially about ourselves.
