Las Herederas

Las Herederas (2018): “..we might think that we are all connected, but we often aren’t..”

“Las Herederas | The Heiresses (2018) was such a cool film. It was the first Paraguayan film that I have ever seen. I accidentally ended up here at World Cinema Amsterdam. I wasn’t even aware that this festival was going on. . .

World Cinema Amsterdam

“I definitely want to see one of the films at World Cinema Amsterdam. I don’t know which yet. . .

In the mood for Love

3 Faces

World Cinema Amsterdam, 3 Faces | Se rokh (2018) “..what’s real and when is it a staged scene?..”

“I thought 3 Faces (2018) was a good film. I do have to admit that I thought it was a documentary film because it seemed conveyed to me in that way by someone else, but it is a beautiful fiction film. The movie is about an actress (Behnaz Jafari) who is shocked by a video of a young girl who says that she also wants to become an actress, but her family prevents her. . .

Sir

World Cinema Amsterdam, Sir (2018): “..The submissiveness and saying ‘yes sir’ to everything..”

“I love Sir (2018) by Rohena Gera and I just came back from India three weeks ago. It was my first time and I went with my girlfriend who had been there already. She has a Surinamese background but she is of East-Indian decent so her roots, far away in history are originally based in India. . .

La Haine

La Haine (1995): “..but it also confronted me with culture clashes..”

“Whenever people ask me which film I like most it is often La Haine (1995) that comes up in my mind. I first saw the film about 20 years ago when I was 13 or 14. I grew up in Groningen, the Netherlands in a neighborhood that wasn’t that rich, but it varied from low-income families up till some middle-class families. . .

Enter the Void

Enter the Void (2009): “..The film makes me think of my dreams and they’re pretty psychedelic..”

I’m painting the view in front of me, but the film that speaks to me most is Enter the Void (2009) by Gaspar Noé with Paz de la Huerta & Nathaniel Brown. . .

Sense 8

Sense 8 (2015): “..by pulling everyone I love and know closer to me..”

“I recently saw the last episode of the Netflix series Sense 8 (2015) created by the Wachowski sisters. Most people probably know it already, but. . .
