In 2012 Tineke van Veen realized a first short film ‘身の安全を守る’, ‘to protect your safety’ in collaboration with the Dutch film-director Eline Schellekens in Shimabara, Japan.
The short film was shown during the international exhibition ‘Genesis-3-Looking for New Earth’, in the Mt Unzen Museum in Shimabara en Museum Mt Aso in Aso.
The exhibition was part of the 5th International Unesco Conference.
In this film she researched the concept of safety concerning people living on an active volcano. During her residency Tineke interviewed eight inhabitants of different age, gender, profession and background. All questions were related to the concept of safety.
Some of the interviewed persons had experienced the outburst of the volcano in 1991, a traumatic experience, because 34 people died.
