The roof of NEMO Science Museum is the highest city square in the Netherlands. Here you will find the open-air exhibition Energetica, a large outdoor terrace and a restaurant: all with a fantastic view of Amsterdam.
Friday night take your seat on the roof for the documentary Acasã, My Home. Gică built a hut in the middle of the wilderness of a large natural park just outside Bucharest. He and his wife had nine children there. Now that the government has ambitious plans for this area, they are forced to move into a rented apartment. The connection between man, city and nature is examined and exposed in this documentary. Romanian spoken, English subtitled. Admission from 18 years of age.
Before the movie there will be a performance by Amsterdam based singer songwriter OTION.
IDFA Meets is IDFA’s event program for a new generation of documentary viewers. Each time from a different location, with a different Amsterdam partner. The common thread? Each time, the best artistic documentaries form the basis for an open discussion. In this way, IDFA shares urgent stories and new perspectives, and we get to know each other through film.
Cinetree selected the summer film Shabu. The documentary Shabu is about a 14 year old boy from the Rotterdam Peperklip neighborhood, who dreams of becoming famous. There is a lot of singing and dancing and the film has a nice pace. We don’t believe you’ll be able to sit still. Dutch spoken, English subtitles.
Before the movie starts you’ll enjoy live music by the Worldhouse Fusion band.
The film platform Cinetree was started in 2014 by filmmaker and social entrepreneur Hanna Verboom. Cinetree provides access to a selection of the best films and documentaries from around the world. Each week, Cinetree’s curators make a selection from the huge range of films on offer. These film enthusiasts are active in the film world as creators, actors or experts. In the Cinetree selection you’ll find films with important themes, social relevance and stories that stay with you longer than they last.
