Program Note

A small group of inhabitants of the 'Low Countries' are fighting the elements and hunger. Their endless inaptitude to organize themselves combines with their impulsiveness and this leads to the building of the mysterious standing stone buildings of The Netherlands. And the invention of ‘Hooba’.

Program Note

One of the challenges of creating a short film is the need to complete the story within a short period of time. No matter how ingenious the idea may be, it is difficult to execute it in a limited timeframe. This work, however, demonstrates cinematic imagination with a simple idea of how dolmens were erected, filling it with the lively energy characteristic of short films. Undoubtedly, this is the most charming of films. (Kristin JI)
