IDFA Meets is IDFA’s new event series for an emerging generation of documentary viewers. This year, five young guest curators are given free rein to put together an (online) film event. Freelance journalist and presenter Bo Hanna has the honor of getting us started.
How do you find your way in a world that is less black and white than some would have you believe? How do you take a stand in a world full of contradictions, complexities, and imperfections—yet a world that is becoming increasingly polarized at the same time? And is this uncertainty a burden, or should you see it as an opportunity to see the world in its true colours?
On May 28, join us online for an in-depth discussion on the interplay between conflicting identities, political responsibility, and finding nuance in divisive times. We’ll stream I Signed the Petition in full, after which Natascha van Weezel and Tessa Boerman will join the conversation. Additionally, we’ll watch some clips from feature film Oriented.
Sign up for free at https://event.idfa.nl/signup and we’ll e-mail you the link to the event. If you’re among the first 20 registrations you’ll receive a voucher to watch feature film Oriented, for free.
After the event, check your inbox for the IDFA Meets Goodie Bag: a digital package including additional content, suggestions for further reading, and more good stuff!
