Bye, Mimi

Legendary Dutch actress Mimi Kok died two days ago from lung disease at the age of 80. She played a role in Edwin Brienen's debut film Terrorama! Mimi was one of Edwin's childhood heroes. The absurdism of her recurring tv-character Gé Braadslee (together with husband Waldo van Dungen/Sjef van Oekel) opened up a surreal world of art and disorder, and gave a new meaning to the concept of political (in)correct taste. Mimi will be dearly missed.
