Als het kan, dan moet het Short documentary , 2010, 54 min.

'It beats sex-induced flushes. Skating flushes are the best.' This is how a skater describes what it feels like to be on the ice. Almost all interviewees in this documentary have a blissful smile on their lips. The men who consider it an honour to set foot on the pristine ice. The woman that photographs the eroticism of the ice. The giggling girls by the refreshment stall. The friends crossing an asphalt road on skates. The families making a pleasure trip with their baby in a Bugaboo. Accompanied by the sound of the bending ice, it produces a typically Dutch image, without lapsing into stereotypes. Filmmaker Leendert Pot is a fanatical skater himself. In the course of twelve years, he shot this documentary on skates, with cameras of varying qualities. The community feeling of the skaters yields candid and sharp conversations about the passion for skating. With the Elfstedentocht dream always in the background.
