Fabulous

Filmrecensie: Fabulous (2019); IDFA 2019

Beoordeling: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 4/5. Fabulous (2019) is erg fascinerend en verhelderend. Deze documentaire engageert je vanaf het begin tot het einde. De muziek, de stiltes, de gesprekken en. . .

Complicity

Complicity (2018): “..It is a film that tells the story of both my mother, grandpa and myself..”

“I recently saw the film Complicity (2018) by Chikaura Kei during the Cinemasia Film Festival and I am very pleased with it. It is a layered story in which a Chinese boy of my generation decides to go to Japan to earn money for his mother and grandmother. . .

Overseas

Overseas (2019): “..Filipino workers who are portrayed as heroes with an intense emotional layer..”

“Overseas (2019) is definitely a must-see! It is a documentary by a female director named Sung-A Yoon that was screened during the CinemAsia Film Festival 2020. . .

XY Chelsea

Filmrecensie: XY Chelsea (2019); IDFA Queer day (Nederlands).

Beoordeling: ✯✯✯✯ – 4/5. XY Chelsea (2019) heeft mij geboeid van het begin tot het einde. Het verhaallijn heeft een erg mooie opbouw. Hawkins zorgt ervoor dat iedereen die de situatie van Chelsea Manning niet kent aan het einde goed geïnformeerd is. Naar mijn mening vind ik het belangrijk om te zien hoe een heel land verdeeld kan raken door slechts één persoon. Is zij een heroïne of een verrader?

Bali documentaries

Bali documentaries: “I would love to go to Bali one day. It’s my ultimate dream”

“I forgot the name of my favorite Bali documentary, but then again there are so many of them and I watched many different ones. Even on Youtube, you can find many documentaries about Bali which to me is the most beautiful Indonesian island province. . .

AdoleCe

AdoleCe (2018): “..The biggest comparison is how my parents disciplined me a lot..”

AdoleCe (2018) is the first film that I saw at this festival and I thought it was a great film. In the beginning, I had to get used to the film and discover its theme. . .

Ri Chang Dui Hua | Small Talk

Ri Chang Dui Hua | Small Talk (2016): “..I haven’t been able to go to school in Taiwan..”

Ri Chang Dui Hua | Small Talk (2016): “My mother, my sister and I left my father’s home to start a better life without him when I was ten years old. Because of this, I haven’t been able to go to school in Taiwan. The education that I did receive was mostly from work, great people I met during my upbringing. . .

Amy Winehouse

Amy (2015) | Avicii: True Stories (2017): “..are you still making music for yourself..”

“We both saw the documentary Amy (2015) about Amy Winehouse. But only one of us saw the documentary of Avicii: True Stories (2017). We are both musicians and just chilling here because we haven’t seen each other in a while. We used to be in an Indie band together, which is why these type of documentaries speak to us…

André Kloer

CinemAsia Film Festival 2018 Interview NL: André Kloer.

Ik ben André Kloer en ik heb Nederlandse literatuur gestudeerd. Doordat ik een journalistieke richting opging kwam ik bij het Financieel Dagblad terecht bij de video redactie. Ik wilde eigenlijk direct met film aan de slag. Ik ben tijdens mijn studie vaker die richting op geweest dus het is echt niet out of the blue…

Nobody's boy Rémi

Nobody’s boy Rémi (1977): “..I noticed that my stories are always about loss..”

Nobody’s boy Rémi (1977): “When I was growing up, there were two films that left a life-long impression with me. I forgot the name of one, but the first was about a family of foxes with seven cubs. The foxes were constantly looking for food, but as the winter became harsher the cubs would die one by one. . .

Grizzly Man

Grizzly Man (2005): “.. I learned you cant force synchronicity to happen..”

“During my studies in Italy, years back, I had this struggle with coincidence or better said, coincidence with a purpose: synchronicity. For me that’s when the magic happens while making a documentary. Like for example Grizzly Man (2005). Life is full of synchronicities. . .

Right Footed & Imba Means Sing: “You find out that people are capable of so many things.”

“What I find most inspiring about film is that you can learn so much from it. I recently saw these two documentaries with my kids, they’re called Right Footed and Imba Means Sing. You find out that people are capable of so many things. . .
