Last week, the shooting of the music film Apollo by director Aaron Rookus (Een Goed Leven, Zuidas) and screenwriter Wander Theunis (In Limbo) started in Amsterdam.

APOLLO tells the story of Paul, a celebrated ‘playlist curator’ at the popular music streaming company Apollo. When confronted with the peak of his succes, Paul spends a summer’s day on a musical odyssey through Amsterdam that slowly but surely forces him to choose between his life’s ambitions and the things he is expected to sacrifice to make his dreams come true.
