Weisz was one of the pioneers of the Dutch New Wave in the sixties, went on to make films with a broad appeal in the seventies, and worked with all the major film and theatre actors in the Netherlands. The theatre, Jewish identity and the inescapability of the past feature largely in his later films.

To mark the premiere of Frans Weisz’s latest film Het leven is vurrukkulluk, based on Remco Campert’s sparkling novel, Eye presents a programme of films by one of the Netherlands’ most prominent filmmakers of the past fifty years. Frans Weisz, actors and crew will attend a number of the screenings.
