Heddy Honigmann
en op n goede dag

Festival year: 2012

Alia (28) and Hamza (32) form a happily married couple from Morocco. Faced with a controversial law that bans the wearing of headscarves, Alia, with the unconditional support of her husband and colleagues, comes up with an amazing and totally unexpected solution to bypass the law.


Peruvian-Dutch filmmaker Heddy Honigmann is one of the most well-known filmmakers in the Netherlands. She has no less than forty productions to her name, most of which are documentaries. Honigmann became famous in the Netherlands and abroad for her humane works, her ability to reach out to those she turns the camera on, and for her compositions.
The main characters in her latest film En Op ‘n Goede Dag are interpreted by Emmy Award winner Maryam Hassouni, Johanna ter Steege and Nasrdin Dchar, who received the Golden Calf at last year’s Netherlands Film Festival and whose speech of gratitude instantly made him a celebrity. En Op ‘n |Goede Dag consists of a documentary and a fiction part. The scenario for the latter was written by Honigmann’s son, Stefan van de Staak. En Op ’n Goede Dag is a humorous, 30-minute film about loyalty. Honigmann made the film at the invitation of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, that recently published a DVD box containing six of her films.
