IT’S A MAN’S WORLD
BLOK 4: DE ROEF
Zaterdag 7 oktober 20:00 tot 23 uur
Het viel op: het aandeel mannelijke hoofdpersonages in de ingezonden films dit jaar. Vandaar een heel blok gewijd aan deze ‘mannelijke’ verhalen.
Jongemannen, oude mannen, stoere mannen, kwetsbare mannen, getroebleerde mannen, zoekende mannen. Kom je ogen uitkijken naar dit filmisch sublieme blok waarin mannen de hoofdrol spelen.

How can you understand a violent past? Somali-born Abdi is furniture designer and support worker. He reenacts his life, marked by war and criminality, with the help of his neighbour and filmmaker Douwe. Through playful reconstructions in a special effects studio, Abdi and Douwe embark on a candid and investigative journey through a painful history, focusing on the creative process throughout.
Zsófia Paczolay • Hongarije • 24’
József works at the largest still-operational grain silo in Budapest. He’s been doing this work for more than 30 years, and lives in a container home next to the structure, where trucks and trains rumble past his window. When he is lowered into the ten-story-deep silos to clean them, he looks like a scuba diver at work. It’s dangerous work for József, not least because he has been exposed to crop dust for many years now. The growing threat to his health could even lead to his death. But he can’t escape it. In fact he seems to have become an integral part of his environment.
ALS ZE ER NIET IS
