In the beginning there was nothing. Darkness. A tiny light appeared on the horizon. Then slowly but surely, everything came to life. Maité, het meisje en de vogel (Maité, the girl and the bird) is a cinematographic shadow play with live music. It tells an absurd story of the Creation that would even have Darwin raise an eyebrow. The central story is the life of Maité, but of course, significant other roles are performed by Godzilla, the poison apple in Snow White, the first man on the moon and a fried chicken.
The key question raised in this magical road movie: are the musicians accompanying the shadow play? Or are they directing the shadows with their exotic music by Les Baxter and Martin Denny? A candid performance that shows two performers and three musicians using everything that crosses their path.
