Everyday Something Disappears
What remains when we start to disappear?
Produced by Luc Haekens and Edwin Brys for VRT (1993)

Resounding with music, humour and humanity this feature blends the story of a pianist documenting his own decline and the residents of a care home near the Dutch border of Essen. Musically interweaving reality and fiction we dive into the internal world of people who feel that they are beginning to lose themselves.

This feature won the Prix Italia, Premios Ondas and a Special Commendation at the Prix Futura in 1993.

The pianist’s diary extracts are taken from the novel ‘Out of Mind’ by J. Bernlef.
