NYC-Series

Daan made 24 film portraits about Dutch people who live in New York City.
They were made for three different regional TV stations in the Netherlands.
12 episodes were about people from the province of Noord-Brabant (aired on Omroep Brabant) 6 about Gelderlanders (aired on Omroep Gelderland) and 6 about Overijsselaars (aired on RTV Oost).
