We freaked when we saw a giant french fry hitch hiking on
the side of the road at the base of the catsup bottle ... wouldn't
That giant french fry was actually the very beautiful,
very talented, and very creative Dutch artist/filmmaker Sietske
Tjallingii. Living in Holland, Miss T (as we like to call her)
graduated in 1997 from the audiovisual department of
the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She has been producing her own short
films from The Netherlands through her company Take T Productions. Her films have
featured in numerous international festivals and are distinguished by
their ironic humor and subversive commentary on contemporary culture
and society... plus, they're just a whole lot of fun!!
Sietske's latest project is titled "My American Dream"
and is produced by Take T and Sasha Dee Production & Management.
based in Amsterdam and offers a platform for emerging artists -
of all disciplines - interested in pushing the limits, crossing
borders, and breaking down barriers.
"My American Dream" brought Miss T, producer Sasha Dees, and director of
Norwood Jr., to the Catsup Bottle. The film
will be played out along Route 66 and feature the American car culture
of the past. Loopy landmarks and funny Pop architecture set the stage
for a surrealistic and existential search through sublime, ridiculous,
and absurd dreamlike fantasies.
Thus, we have a french fry hitch hiking under the World's
Largest Catsup Bottle. ...whew!! This
was so much fun - the Big Tomato
himself even got in on the action! And to think, we just completely by chance, happened
to drive by.
for "My American Dream" to be released in 2011 !
