On Saturday 17 April, we will present two films with live discussions together with Trouw.
Impressive and heartbreaking drama about the hours leading up to the Srebrenica genocide of 1995. Aïda works as a translator for the Dutch-run UN base. She is torn apart between her duties for the powerless Dutchbat soldiers, and the desperation of her fellow-villagers – especially her husband and two sons.
The screening at 17:00 will be followed by a live discussion with a lawyer who assists the Mothers of Srebrenica and actor Johan Heldenbergh who plays Thom Karremans.
Impressive documentary following several teenage boys who fled their home countries and are trying to find protection in Europe. Stories of hardship and exploitation, but also of endurance, warmth and human spirit. Stories of present-day Europe we should not look away from.
The world premiere at 20:00 will be followed by a live discussion. Journalist Remke de Lange (Trouw) interviews directors Els van Driel and Eefje Blankenvoort, and researcher Zuhoor al Qaisi live about making this special film in which the underage refugees are not only the protagonists but also have done most of the camera work. You can participate in the discussion by asking questions via the live chat.
