Jacco's Film

Director Daan Bakker graduated this year from the Netherlands Film and Television Academy with JACCO'S FILM.

Jacco (10) allows the viewer a glimpse into his colourful world of experience. Filled with enthusiasm, he talks about his friends, girlfriends, interests, everyday activities and, – not to be forgotten – the wonders of nature. To Judge by his behaviour, he is an extremely talented, loved and in every respect successful young man. He doesn’t seem to care that his parents are continually quarrelling: Jacco decides how the world works, but how long can he keep it up? ('25)
