After two weeks of working on my new novel Vogel kan niet vliegen (The Bird Can’t Fly), I’m empty and fagged out. It’s not easy to work on a story that already exist. Sometimes the characters in the book are apt to act in a different way compared to how they act in the film; and I let them. In the end, they are the rulers of the game, aren’t they?
In the meantime piles of work for the film are waiting to be done yet and on Thursday I give a lecture for the Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management about what exactly it is a director does.
