Eye strives for film experiences that reach beyond screens. Perfomances and conversations are essential elements of film. Eye’s end of Summer will focus on such experiences. We welcome several artists in the museum to reveal parts of their magic. Among others are the director Alex van Warmerdam and VR artist Laurie Anderson. Come and see!
An evening with Alex van Warmerdam

Van Warmerdam also explains why the psycho horror Under the Skin by Jonathan Glazer has been one of his inspirations.
Please note that the speaking language of this evening will be Dutch.
