about the project

For the short graduation film titled,  ’NIENKE’ .

The story:
Nienke and Kiara are in the second year of their Business Administration studies and both come for a job interview for an internship at Jaap’s company. When Nienke and Kiara are in the waiting room, Jaap walks in. Jaap asks if Nienke walks with him to his office, but he looks at Kiara. Without thinking about it, he had assumed that the young woman with white skin and blond hair was called Nienke. Nienke has a tinted/brown complexion and when she announces that she is Nienke, Jaap calls her a tropical surprise. Jaap means this as something positive, but it touches Nienke. During the job interview, Nienke wanders off, thinking about all the other times people have made similar comments. Nienke can no longer concentrate properly and becomes insecure. She just sees herself as Nienke, but she’s starting to feel like she might not quite fit in after all. Why else would Jaap and all those other people be surprised that she is Nienke; a second-year business student from Groningen.
