Jules van Hulst, 2021
De Rietfluit is a video installation based on Rumi's poem of the same name. A mystical experience full of visual associations at the intersection between real and unreal.

The four documentary chapters show the story of displaced speakers, fragmented and shifting borders. They all question the nature of their identity.
