      Stop Acting Now

    • language no problem
  • In this film the Wunderbaum actors stop acting and start taking action. We follow the actors’ desperate attempts to change the world radically. What is the real extent of our personal engagement for the common cause?

    Maartje Remmers starts a group called The Basic Optimists and visits deprived neighbourhoods. Marleen Scholten opens, after the Japanese example, a Crying Cafe and fights against our stressful positivity culture. Matijs Jansen develops an urban gardening app and goes looking for major investors, while Walter sees more benefit in radical actions that should undermine the banking sector and the multinationals. Wine Dierickx gives birth to a child and thinks that this is her best investment in the future.

    The differences in approach and vision are exerting increasing pressure on the group.
