Till the end of the World

A Film by Florence Bouvy

Synopsis

TOT HET EINDE VAN DE WERELD.
The eight-year-old Marie lives with her father Boudewijn in a small house at the edge of the city. Their world is full of play and imagination, and Boudwijn teaches her to dream. However, Marie has become aware of an unpredictability in her father. Because of his addiction, the warm, dreamy man of the day can suddenly turn into a pair of empty eyes that don’t seem to see her. A man that is not her father. As Marie tries to fight this feeling of unsafety, the two seem to spiral out of control. A story about the strength of a child fighting for the unconditional love of her father.

    Growing up in Amsterdam, surrounded by a high-paced culture and parents that worked in film and theatre, Florence caught the love of storytelling at a very early age. As she developed herself creatively and intellectually, her fascination for human behaviour became a big part of her voice. In a constant search of deeper reflection on her stories, she studied philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, and soon after applied to the Netherlands Film Academy, where she was selected to study film directing.
    During her school years she experimented with different styles in search of the perfect balance for each story, switching between the expressive and poetic, versus more sober, naturalistic forms. Her drive is to create experiences for the audience through the evocative power of film.
