A fortunate hand
A documentary based on the life and work of draftsman Peter van Straaten in which the eight-part mini-serial story Agnes will serve as a common theme for the story.
Central in the film will be the work of Peter van Straaten and the way in which he sheds a light on interpersonal relations, and the resulting fortune and misfortune, in his work: marriage, work, politics, love, parent-child relations. Through the fictional story of Agnes, from the eponymous mini-serial (played by Renée Fokker), documentary and drama will intertwine.
