Housewitz

Oeke Hoogendijk

In Housewitz, daughter and filmmaker Oeke Hoogendijk tries to find out the reason behind her mother’s categorically refusal to leave her house.

Lous Hoogendijk-de Jong literally hasn’t been outside her home for dozens of years. She has a recurring nightmare which she puts down to the day when as a Jewish girl she was taken from her house and deported to the Nazi camps. What seems perfectly ordinary in this film at first sight - a woman in a living room watching tv with her cat - gradually turns into an oppressive reality where the inside and outside worlds are at odds and housemate Holocaust is a daily presence.
