In FUTURE ME, Vincent Boy Kars confronts his fears and desires. The director himself can be seen in the film, but he is also portrayed by actor Martijn Lakemeier. They engage in dialogue with Vincent’s mother, his father, his girlfriend Eva, a therapist and others to explore how he became the person he is today.

As in his previous work, Kars uses fiction to explore the human condition and our inner world. The film is highly personal, yet very universal – Kars holds up a mirror to the viewer. To what extent is FUTURE ME fiction? Where is the line between Vincent the director and Vincent the character? These questions are not easy to answer, but are important because they force us to reflect on the all-encompassing visual culture we live in. As Vincent explains to Eva in the film, ‘Fiction is the lie we use to tell the truth.’

Vincent Boy Kars, Netherlands, 2024, 98 min. Dutch spoken, without subtitles. With Martijn Lakemeier, Damaris de Jong, Leopold Witte, Saskia Temmink.
