Drama Girl

Feature film, 2020, 90 min.

Premiered IFFR & Berlinale. Release Dates Netherlands 5 March 2020. Is our life a story? And if so, can we re-write it? In Drama Girl, director Vincent Boy Kars gets a young woman to act out a number of key scenes from her recent past. Perhaps, Kars thinks, this could help her come to terms with certain events. In the meantime, he also gains something: a film that probes how fiction and documentary can learn from one another.

Twenty-something Leyla willingly submits to the film experiment. Kars surrounds her with actors: Pierre Bokma plays her father, Elsie de Brauw her mother, Jonas Smulders her boyfriend. As she rakes over the past with them, she discusses the effect this has on her with the filmmaker.
