Annemiek van Gorp and René Goossens have been working together at De Productie since September 1998. De Productie produces art house drama and documentaries with a strong social involvement and an artistic challenge. De Productie does not only intend to be a meeting place for local and national talent, but also a reliable partner in international co-productions. Our films are often a mix of fiction, documentary and art. We are especially looking for universal stories straight from the heart, as varied and colorful as the creators of these stories are.

Dutch-Surinamese Dennis and his Dutch-French lover Katja are recently divorced and to get to know each other and their children better, they decide to spend their holiday hiking with a donkey through the Auvergne and Cévennes, the region where Katja is coming from.

After the death of her father twenty years ago, she left her village and abandoned her French boyfriend Guy.

A travelogue through Shangri-La; a fictitious paradise from the British classic novel Lost Horizon. Twenty years ago a Tibetan tourist spot in China presented scientific proof that it was the real Shangri-La. In her search for the truth behind the supposed evidence the filmmaker excavates layers of fact and fiction of the area. What words and images have attached themselves to facts? How do stories come into being and how do they shape reality?
