In Procedure

Jiska Rickels

Netherlands, The 2016, 58 min.


Spoken language: Arabic, Dutch

Subtitles: English

Festival year: 2017

In Procedure tells the story of Hassan, a father who fled to the Netherlands to save his family. His fifteen-year-old daughter Yomna is seriously ill and he was forced to leave her behind in Syria. The long wait during the asylum procedure makes him so desperate that he is starting to doubt the wisdom of his decision.


In Procedure starts, where numerous news articles about refugees end. How do the men cope after their arrival in the Netherlands? How do they manage to reunite with their families?

The screening of this documentary in theatres is usually combined with a matching event. Later on, we expect the film to be broadcast on television. The events enable the audience to meet refugees and sign up as a language buddy or as a mentor at the Refugee Talent Hub. This initiative brings together large Dutch corporations, government, the educational system and NGOs and opens up possibilities for refugees in the Dutch job market.
