Frans Weisz / NL, 1966 / 109 min.
He meant it to be his own Citizen Kane: Frans Weisz’ A Gangstergirl.With youthful overconfidence, Weisz had visions of launching a film into the public eye that was meant ‘to make all other films superfluous’. A Gangstergirl became a cult film, full of zest and feverish expectations of the future. Extra screening due to high demand.
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.
