Ik / I

A film by: Jona Honer

Pieter, a 56-year-old writer, suffers from a personality change caused by the brain damage inflicted by a tumour. His wife Annette must learn to live with her new husband. Filmed before, during and after Pieter’s brain surgery, I shows us how fragile our personality is and how closely it is connected with our physical brains.
