Manitoba

Manitoba is a short movie by Mirka Duijn and Nina Spiering about a man (Raymond Thiry) who washes ashore on a strange island. He seeks refuge in the only pub in a desolate village: cafe Manitoba. Unfortunately the cafe is not the safe haven he had hoped for. The film was produced by Marieke de Blaay and had it's grand premiere at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam. It was also selected for the Cannes Filmfestival and nominated for the Best Debut Film at the Dutch Filmfestival. Audio postproduction and sounddesign was done at Pastelle by Jaap Sijben. Additionally, we created a number of drones and atmospheres based on extremely low tuned string instruments, which are used in various scenes throughout the film.
