Stuff Everywhere

2011 The Netherlands / Duration: 54 mins Directed by: Judith de Leeuw

For many of us, stuff rules our lives more than we would like to admit. This is definitely the case for Judith de Leeuw, who lives a normal life with her boyfriend and young son in a small apartment in the Netherlands. Stuff Everywhere documents her personal quest to discover the connection between people and their stuff. Slightly obsessed with her own possibly unhealthy connection to her stuff, she decides to count it — all of it. But counting stuff isn’t as simple as it might sound, and de Leeuw finds herself spiraling deeper and deeper into the obsession. Their small apartment is too small for the task, so she rents a warehouse and begins categorizing and chronicling. With humor, quirkiness and style, de Leeuw manages to tackle some big questions about, well, all sorts of stuff.
