Narcis, het loon van schoonheid Short documentary , 1998, 35 min.

Short documentary commissioned by the Province of North Holland about the life and work of daffodil breeder Karel van der Veek. With passion and dedication, he has bred more than 2000 different types of daffodils and narcissi that can be seen in Burgervlotbrug. With the aid of his three sons, he has put together a unique and enormous collection. The film shows the other side of the bulb industry, not the large scale financial side. The cultivated daffodils have to be planted out again every year. Karel van der Veek does everything by hand. The film focuses on the interweaving of man and nature, beauty, variety, dedication and the changing seasons.
