Catch the followiing films today at the festival: At 17.00 hrs at filmhuis Den Haag, zaal 1 don't miss the screening of The Reluctant Revolutionary. During the revolution in Yemen in 2011, Kais, the friendly, qat-chewing tourist guide, transforms from skeptical outsider into engaged participant.
Also at 17.00 hrs, at Theater aan het Spui 1 there will be the screening of the feature film Les cheveaux de Dieu. It is dusty and hectic in the Moroccan slums where the brothers Yachine and Hamid grow up in a world of drugs and crime. Gruesome film in which a poverty-stricken community becomes a breeding ground for Islamic fundamentalism and extremism.
Om 19.15 is er de 'feelgood' speelfilm Wadjda, de publieksprijswinnaar van het IFFR, in Theater aan het Spui 1. Winner of the audience award at this year’s International Film Festival Rotterdam. A feel good movie par excellence. Self-willed Wadjda from Riyadh goes to great lengths to get a green bicycle. Boys are allowed to ride a bicycle. So why isn’t she? Wadjda is the first feature film by a female director from Saudi Arabia.
