  • Herman Brood & His Wild Romance - Cha-Cha +

    Cha-Cha is a film portrait of Dutch rock musician and painter Herman Brood (1946-2001). He was filmed at the pinnacle of his career, along with internationally reknown singer Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich.

    In 1992 Herman Brood organized a painting session with mentally handicapped artists in Rotterdam. He saw similarities with his own work and wanted to work with these painters. In a few hours time seven paintings were created. Brood’s impulsive way to work with his participants led to some surprising results. The painting session turned out as an explosion of creativity as Brood, with his typical sense of humour, warmheartedly approached his participants as equals. His working method was like his life style. He knew how to stop in time. The film is a tribute to the versatile artist, rock musician, junky and cult figure Herman Brood, who committed suicide in July 2001.
