is a gripping adaptation of Ayn Rand's uncompromising 20th-century classic, a major inspiration for libertarian politicians on both sides of the Atlantic. It is is a portrait of Howard Roark, a brilliant young architect who rejects easy routes to commercial success in favour of innovation and independence. It's ?a war of ideas', in Van Hove's words, encompassing art and architecture, commerce and capitalism. But it's also a passionate hymn to individualism - and a dark, violent love story. UK Premiere. The Fountainhead is presented in Dutch with English subtitles and contains scenes of an adult nature.
