Witte Wolken (Dutch for White Clouds) is Plucky Penguin Picture’s and Eva Knoet’s debut feature film. The film has been made on an incredible low budget with a crew and cast of volunteers who worked on the film to expand their portfolio and experience.
Femke is in her mid twenties, she is married to David and they are expecting their first child together. Menno is a student mainly because it is what society expects him to do. Rather than focussing on his degree he lives for his music and the band he plays in. Eduard is a middle-aged civil servant. He is relatively successful at his job, married to Irene and happy with the routine of his life. One by one their daily routines are interrupted as they lose a loved one. How will they react and deal with their loss?
Even though the film is yet to be released quite a lot of local media have picked up on our story (you will find more information here). White Clouds went international mediawise with an article over at MegaphoneOz. Recently we have also entered the international film bloggers world on both Cineburbs and Euro but not trash.
The film has had it’s world premiere in The Hague, the Netherlands, on May 6th. We are currently finishing work on the English subtitles before we head out into the world through the international film festival circuit. So check back soon as there might be a screening at a festival near you! In the mean time, check out the crew & cast teasers for the film (they’re all subtitled)!
The English subtitles for the film have been translated and made by: Eva Knoet, Laura Slim, Aline van Andel, Vincent Thomas, Daan Peters and Monia Elkhannoussi.
