Troost van de witte neus

Troost van de witte neus

 

'Troost van de witte neus' or in English 'Comfort of the white nose'  is a experimental documentary that I made about my love for donkeys.                        In this documentary I look at the history of donkeys and man and how this has developed.

Inspiration to make this film was 'The Donkey' a poem by G.K. Chesterton:

When fishes flew and forests walked
   And figs grew upon thorn, 
Some moment when the moon was blood
   Then surely I was born. 

With monstrous head and sickening cry
   And ears like errant wings, 
The devil’s walking parody
   On all four-footed things. 

The tattered outlaw of the earth, 
   Of ancient crooked will; 
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb, 
   I keep my secret still. 

Fools! For I also had my hour; 
   One far fierce hour and sweet: 
There was a shout about my ears, 
   And palms before my feet.
