De Wereld van Carlijn

Ariane Greep

Dutch Movies Matter

‘How can you contribute to making the world a more just place?’ asks Carlijn Kingma. With her artwork The Waterworks of Money she embarked on a breathtaking journey in search of the role money plays in our society. This is the origin story of an ambitious masterpiece. 
 
Carlijn Kingma’s impressive artwork The Waterworks of Money effectively illustrates the way the financial sector is intertwined with our daily lives. When you see the work, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to start something so detailed and complex. 
 
Patience seems to be the keyword in this documentary portrait, which follows Kingma from her creation of The Waterworks of Money to its exhibition at the Venice Biennale. Filmmaker Ariane Greep shows a craftswoman at work, slowly but surely refining her art to achieve the ultimate masterpiece.
