Remco Campert is one of the greatest Dutch writers of our time. The film
portrait ›De Tijd Duurt Één Mens Lang‹ (›Time Takes A Man A Lifetime‹) shows
the writer as he is today - looking back without regret. Campert is alone in his
study, thinking, writing, smoking. Talking about the process of composing
poetry. Conquering the world, or at least contributing something to it.
The film was shown for the first time at the GDMW festival in
Rotterdam, 29 September 2006. In November 2007, New Cool Collective sax
virtuoso Benjamin Herman released an album inspired by the Dutch ›Vijftigers‹
writer Remco Campert. Starting point of this album was the 15 minute
soundtrack Herman wrote for a documentary about this legendary writer.
Inspired by Campert's poetry, Benjamin decided to go back into the studio and
extend the material and record some extra tracks. The well received album of
Benjamin Herman Campert is the result.
