We created the audio for this promotional video for Jaap Bos' and Friso Hoeneveld's book "De Volgeling".

Summer 1919: the Czech telepath Eugen de Rubini arrives in Amsterdam. He doesn't speak a word of Dutch and performs an act that is actually already outdated, but in no time he is the talk of the town. He sold out theaters, puzzled scientists, and, with his mysterious glance, turned the heads of many young women.

Who was this enigmatic figure? In The Follower, we step into the footsteps of De Rubini and his entourage. They lead us to pre-war Vienna and Budapest, to Russia during the Great War, and to the San Francisco of the 1920s and the New York of the shackle king Harry Houdini.
