“My biggest wish is to make at least one movie in my life. Right now I’m very captivated with the film The Good Herbs | Las Buenas Hierbas (2010) which is a film by Mexican film director Maria Novaro. . .
“I’m a filmmaker so I there are too many films that I like. I freaking love Close Up | nemā-ye nazdīk (1990), which is an Iranian film by Abbas Kiarostami. The story is about cinephile Hossain Sabzian. . .
⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 4/5. Such a touching eyeopener! Sir (2018) entails a social-cultural topic; that of segregation and class difference, but most importantly that of a particular kind of love that crosses boundaries.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 4/5. Wat een ontroerende ‘eyeopener’! Sir (2018) behandelt een een sociaal-cultureel onderwerp; die van segregatie en klasseverschil, maar nog belangrijker dat van een bepaald soort liefde dat grenzen overschrijdt. . .
“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. . .
“I definitely want to see one of the films at World Cinema Amsterdam. I don’t know which yet. . .
“If there is a film that inspired my own film Sir (2018) that would be In the Mood for Love (2000) by Kar-Wai Wong. I love that film a lot. . .
“What a beautiful film. I really thought The Wolves of the East | Higashi no Ohkami (2018) was a beautiful film. The story of the film made me think of Akira Kurosawa’s film Dersu Uzala. . .
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. . .
“I can definitely connect with Ultimos Dias en La Habana (2016), because I have been to Havana, Cuba last year and we enjoyed our stay it was super fun. . .
“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. . .
I have fantastic news to announce. This year Humans of Film Amsterdam will collaborate with World Cinema Amsterdam Festival. Which takes place from the 16th till the 25th of August. You can visit the festival at the Rialto and De Balie theatres in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. . .
