Media that Matter


2016, 105 min.


Spoken language: Dutch

Festival year: 2016

Crossover, tonguein-cheek show Media that Matter is a cooperation with journalism production company Prospektor. It will shine a light on refugees and migration, using short film, interviews, and radio documentaries. Former UAF student and actor George Tobal will guide the audience through this theatrical night. Using fragments of films, such as the film Sniper of Kobani by Reber Dosky, and using music by Saman Amini Media that Matter offers an alternative view on refugee related topics. 


The Sniper of Kobani offers an unhurried glance into the soul of a Kurdish sniper named Haron, who defends Kobani from the advancing Islamic State.
