Logo Movies that Matter 'The Look of Silence' opens Movies that Matter Day at IDFA
Movies that Matter Day at IDFA

On Sunday November 23rd Movies that Matter and IDFA present a special day at IDFA: four inspiring documentaries in combination with Q&A's.

The day will start with the follow-up to the award winning film The Act of Killing by Joshua Oppenheimer: The Look of Silence. This time the director follows a family who discover the perpetrators of the Indonesian genocide that murdered their son, accusing him of being a communist. After the screening there will be a Q&A with director Joshia Oppenheimer, moderator is journalist Remco Meijer.

The documentary Those Who Said No is about the search for justice and closure after what is known as “The Bloody Decade” in Iran. The film examines the fallout of a fatwah issued by Ayatollah Khomeini in 1988, which ordered the execution of all political prisoners. After the screening there will be a Q&A with director Nima Sarvestani and Iraj Mesdaghi, who is portrayed in the documentary.

In We Come as Friendsthe director of Darwin's Nightmare takes us on this voyage in his tiny, self-made flying machine out of tin and canvas. Chinese oil workers, UN peacekeepers, Sudanese warlords, and American evangelists ironically weave common ground in this documentary. After the screening there will be a Q&A with director Hubert Sauper.

Uyghers, Prisoners of the Absurd recounts the incredible odyssey of 22 men from China’s persecuted Uyghur minority who were detained in Guantánamo as terrorists. These Turkic-speaking Muslims, persecuted by the authorities in Beijing, escaped to the Middle East where they were captured and sold as terrorists to the American forces. After the screening there will be a Q&A with director Patricio Henriquez and Sabin Willet, who is portrayed in the documentary.

The day will start with a screening of The Look of Silence in the beautiful venue of Tuschinski 1. After the screening there will be an extended Q&A with the filmmakers. In the afternoon the programme will continue in Room 2 of the Tuschinski Theatre. The Q&A's this afternoon will be moderated by Dutch documentary filmmaker Marijn Frank.
