Robert Westdijk / NL, 1995 / 91 min.

He appeared out of nowhere, Robert Jan Westdijk, and won a Golden Calf for his debut film. Little Sister – about a brother who invades the life of his little sister (Kim van Kooten) from behind a camera – is now a modern Dutch classic. Westdijk will give an introduction to the film.

Then in 1995, he blows away the Dutch film world with his independent debut film Little Sister, which created a real buzz even before screening at the Netherlands Film Festival.
