The Mobile Cinema

Ilse van Velzen / Femke van Velzen

World premiere

Festival year: 2011

The Mobile Cinema follows the mobile cinema crew members as they travel through inhospitable areas of Congo, to screen their much-awarded Fighting the Silence and change people’s attitude towards rape.

More than three thousand people sit on a large grass pitch in front of a huge screen. Moments of complete silence alternate with ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ and laughter. Mobile cinema reaches thousands of people in the remote villages of the Democratic Republic of Congo. All eyes are turned towards Fighting the Silence, a documentary film that, in a reconciling manner, shows the daily struggle of rape victims against stigmas and taboos.
Documentary film by Ilse and Femke van Velzen, who other than Fighting the Silence produced Weapon of War, that won the “Gouden Kalf”.


Netherlands, The 2011, 23 min.
