Navel of the World

At the approx. geographical center of my long-time barefoot-training parkour, presenting a flm-installation displaying the tumultuous life and times of Beach-Inn restaurant owner Peter de Bie. The film was shot in his beach restaurant in 2007 on Kodak Vision 3 filmstock (5219 and 7219); both the film and the restaurant came a long way before they finally united for this celebration with a live interview. It took place in the construction --  rebuilt from scratch, using heavy 18th century wood from Amsterdam  -- by carpenter Peer and his team.
