In this project Kim Winder worked together with Isabella Settels to translate the painting 'The roses of Heliogabalus' by Alma Tadema into a performance movie. It shows a family that is enjoying a festive dinner in the dunes, celebrating the mother’s birthday. While trying to keep-up its outside appearance, the family faces power struggles within their relation.
