The last day of the festival!

The last day of the festival!

April 01, 2017

Today is the last day of the Movies that Matter Festival. There are many beautiful films to see: you can pay a visit to The Teacher, at 14:15 o'clock. This film is about a teacher in communist Czechoslovakia in 1983 who has relevant contacts with the Communist Party. As a result, she implements her own appraisal.

At 19:00 o'clock the film Machines will be screened. This poetic documentary shows  the conditions in the clothing factories in India. Grown-ups and children are working long days for low wages. After the screening of the film there will be a Q&A with researcher and journalist Pauline Overeem.

At 20:00 o'clock the film Newton will be screened. Film director Amit Masurkar won the CICAF-award during the last filmfestival in Berlin.

The documentary Gaza Surf Club will be screened at 21:30 o'clock. Surfer dudes in the Gaza strip dream about facing the high waves, but this won't be easy considering they live in the biggest outdoor prison.

Last but not least, the film Ik alleen in de klas will be screened at 21:45 o'clock. This film is about the racism that the children of film director Karin Junger have to face every day.

We will also close the festival with our spectacular closing party starting from 22:00 o'clock. This will take place in the Spui Theatre with the Moves that Matter Party and the band Zitakula will perform.
