Filmmaking starts for Marieke Widlak by reflecting on things that we normally overlook. She explores complicated subjects in stories close to home. In this way she makes the difficult to discuss accessible. Why is expressing appreciation to loved ones so difficult at times? What is a feeling of home? When is charity work successful? How far are we willing to go to maintain a happy relationship?
