La Dama Blanca 
La Dama Blanca - Rina Penso - cherishes the past. What’s life worth without her memories? That’s where she finds him, her great love. In the music of "Te Busco" he shines in his role. She stands before him, dressed in white, and he kisses her, a kiss that still burns on her lips.
Her butler Sancho - Giovanni Abath - is determined to pull "his" Dama Blanca back to the present, but her ex-lover haunts the house. In the music, in his photos, in her mind ... Francis is a ghost that Sancho cannot put his finger on.
"La Dama Blanca" is a filmed adaptation of the eponymous play. A classic rendition in which the longing for love is the central theme. This Short Film is a project of Guus de Sain, as Director and Producer and Hester Jonkhout as Director of Photography and Editor. Actors are Rina Penso and Giovanni Abath.

E Wega di Bida


E Wega d Bida
The Game of Life

Mixed media paintings by Suzet Rosaria

Opening Saturday September 11
Exhibition till October 23

E Wega di Bida is an ode to the maturing process of life where self-development takes the forefront. “In the game of life you are the player and your opponent. You decide your next move, but you are also in charge of your reaction to it”, according to Rosaria.

Rosaria compares the game of life with the game of chess. The game of chess has dominant black and white colors. Symbolizing the extremes in life, the good and the bad in you and what lies in between.

For this exhibition, the artist used a variety of techniques, materials and vibrant Caribbean colors. With these materials she created textures to add depth and character to her work. With this, she wants to illustrate that each life path has several layers. Life is not always a smooth ride.

Apart from the repetitive theme of black and white checkered fields in her work she also plays with other recurring forms and (human and/or animal) figures. Each having a different meaning.
