Planet X FX

Waterland Film and director Boris Paval Conen contacted Planet X early in 2010 for the ambitious, seven-part drama series 'De Geheimen van Barslet'. The participating broadcasting companies are the NCRV and NTR.

In the middle of nowhere lies the little Dutch village: Barslet. Barslet seems to be an ordinary and peaceful village. But if you believe that, you're mistaken. Within a short period of time the villagers are shaken up by lots of strange events: a pyromaniac terrorises the village, a boy dies in mysterious circumstances, a child seems to be able to predict the future, and to the amazement of everyone, living fish fall out of the sky on the village square.

In the 7 episodes of the television series the viewer sees the same sequence of events, but each time through the eyes of a different villager. In this way the viewer learns more about the reasons for the strange events, but each answer also leads to new questions.

On October 4th, 2012 we were guests together with director Boris Paval Conen in 'De Wereld Draait Door' (VARA). Watch the clip of the conversation about the visual effects for the fish showers in the series here!
