Concert and arthouse movie merge into an audiovisual trip.

A performance that fits singer Rianne Wilbers like a glove.

Struggling with the blurring line between fact and fiction, singer Blossom is confronted with her greatest fear. Gradually, Blossom's colourful and complex personality is unraveled on a meta-level. Images, texts and music with an intense beauty, raw emotions and humour that puts things into perspective. The performance is rooted in the reality of maker and performer, and lets these slip through the fingers into hallucinatory vistas.

about Crash Blossom
“One of the many highlights of the festival November Music was Crash Blossom by composer and cinematographer Merijn Bisschops. … A performance with so many layers and implications, that you should see it multiple times to uncover everything.”

about Crash Blossom
“From this description you could derive that the performance is quite heavy handed, but that is not always the case – the reactions of the ‘real’ Rianne on her blossoming image often have an unmistakable comical effect, and also the ‘act’ of the film itself (when you can speak of such a thing in regard to this sequence of poetical images) has her humoristic moments, even or especially during intense moments, like the scene where a fully collapsed Blossom awakes on stretch of grass and is poked by a robot lawn mower.”
