The screening of Reporter, Wednesday at 21.00 hrs is part of the Students' Choice programme. Students can attend this screening for free.
The impressive documentary Reporter we follow Nicholas D. Kristof, reporter for The New York Times. In the summer of 2007 Kristof goes to the Democratic Republic of Congo. He travels through destroyed villages and refugee camps and pays a blood-curdling visit to Congo's main warlord, general Nkunda.
Students have their own competition programme at the Movies that Matter Festival. Students' Choice was created in 2009 together with De Haagse Hogeschool (The Hague University). A jury made up of five students chose three films out of a pre-selection taken from the festival programme. This year's selection consists of Mugabe and the White African, Reporter and The Red Chapel.
Owners of a student card can obtain free entrance tickets for the screenings by presenting their student card at the cash desk. Reserving is still recommended.
Students' Choice is organised in cooperation with de Haagse Hogeschool.
