Starting of 2020 Diede has three narrative projects in the works.
Currently he is working as editor on ‘Painted’, an independent film produced and shot in Dallas, Texas. ‘Outside In’ and ‘Indian in the closet’ are at a preproduction stage and Diede will be advising and editing these documentaries which are shot in the Netherlands.
Painted, is an intimate, character driven, realist film about a young girl’s plight to regain the life she callously threw away.
Devastated by the death of her mother and deeply hurt by the discovery of her father’s adultery, Naomi runs away. Abducted by a pimp named Daddy, she’s forced into prostitution. Daddy’s bottom bitch, Honey guides her along the way as she struggles with her new reality. As her exploitation worsens Naomi must look deep within in order to return home.
OUTSIDE IN (Documentary)
This documentary discusses the history of economics leading up to the 2007 crisis, the crisis itself, policies put in place by governments/corporations after the crisis and finally a radical solution to our current situation. It should address policies that will decrease income inequality, avoid future financial crises and most importantly guarantee a habitable planet for all living creatures.
To understand why contemporary economics is wrong, we will interview Steve Keen, who has spent more than two decades fighting for realism in economics. He is one of the few who predicted the financial crisis of 2007. And he is the first and still one of the few who is an independent economist who receives his funding through public on site Patreon.
INDIAANTJE IN DE KAST / INDIAN IN THE CLOSET (Documentary)
The Tropenmuseum (Amsterdam) possesses objects that were acquired in a different zeitgeist and are, to put it mildly, curious, bizarre and very controversial. The “Indian on strong water” is a great example. This fetus, originating from Suriname, was prepared in the Netherlands in the nineteenth century and fitted with sandals, jewelry, a wicker skirt and a headdress.
The story of the little Indian is uncomfortable and confronting, but it must be told. These stories provide a valuable view of our past and the future and although the object is no longer exhibited, it is necessary to get the story of the little Indian out of the closet.
