Watch mint2’s new film in collaboration with Sophie Straat, for her new album Smartlap is niet dood, now on Youtube. This three-part music film is co-directed by Flo Meijer and Sophie Straat and centers around the daily lives of four women. They find themselves in everyday situations dealing with annoying and aggressive men, facing belittling behaviour, and fighting catcalling. At the same time, Mooier als je lacht celebrates women and girls, friendship and last but not least our moms.
