Decision Pending

Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 29:55 | Pays-Bas, Belgique | 2014

Decision Pending is an alienating observation of politicians stuck in the daily routines of decision making. During committee meetings and plenary sessions everyone seems under the spell of difficult decisions that have to be made. Decision Pending is a non-political film about politics, which unfolds itself as an audiovisual symphony.

Tomas Hendriks (°1985) studied Composition at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (NL) and Film / Audiovisual Art at KASK School of Arts in Ghent (BE). His compositions have been performed and awarded throughout the Netherlands and Belgium. His films are characterized by a strong sense for composition and focus on the experience of image and sound. They can be best described as moods, shaped or stretched out over a course of time. Consequentially, the unspoken and unexplained are prominent. In 2009, his graduation film Strangers (15min) was screened and awarded at several film festivals. For Decision Pending, his first independent film, he also wrote the music, which is performed by Spectra Ensemble.
