With 2Doc.nl we present two documentaries at the festival.
This year’s NPO 2Doc selection includes two special documentaries. Sabaya (Hogir Hirori) and Myanmar Diaries (Myanmar Film Collective). Members of the Myanmar Film Collective are guests at our festival and are present during several discussions. Their brave, secretive film work makes Myanmar Diaries an urgent masterpiece about the country’s 2021 coup. Sabaya also shows great courage: volunteers freeing Yazidi women from IS captivity.
A hybrid collective film about life in the aftermath of the February 2021 military coup in Myanmar. Short films by ten young anonymous filmmakers, combined with footage by brave citizen journalists filming on the Myanmar streets. Courageous and very impressive.
Real-life thriller about a group of volunteers freeing Yazidi women and girls out of IS captivity. With the help of women who have infiltrated, Mahmoud and Ziyad carry out dangerous rescue operations. Once out, the women and girls face the hard task of trying to heal again.
