For 4X7 / Canvas, Liesbeth made a short tv-documentary that explores the boundary between fiction and reality. For her 7 minutes she visits DJ Eddy del White and explores the boundary between fiction and reality.
I see myself as a night owl.
He sees clearly.
He looks closely.
He is like a roaming bird that flies over everyone.
If he can intervene, he will.
A DJ is more determined at night than in the daytime.
Just like a night owl.
He watches his prey and waits for the opportunity to attack.

4 x 7 brings
compelling stories that the makers have to tell for one reason or another. It’s
about things that intrigue, fascinate, move, inspire or annoy them. The form is
documentary, but without a fixed format. The duration of seven minutes offers
them the opportunity to distinguish themselves as a director. Each director
makes only one documentary. So each story becomes an expression of the maker
himself, of his story and his way of telling.
