Various Directors


Video/filmexperimentafter based on the theatre piece Hetze written by Dirk Groeneveld, co-ordinated by Frans Weisz. Four-part episode film.

Premiere: May 29th 1986 at the Shaffy Theater. Broadcasted by the VPRO on November 23th 1986.

This production was made in co-production with the NOS Dienst Opleidingen, Stuido Sandbergen and with financial support of the Ministerie van Welzijn, Volksgezondheid en Cultuur.

Whoever wins the Silver Human Trofee will rule the world. Four men battle for the name of Mister Competitive. Whoever is the most brazen-faced, the most merciless, whoever plays off the other candidates against each other best? The man who combines the most evil character with unscrupulous cold-bloodedness wins this ritual game.

Four directors were invited to interpretate their vision on this subject.
