Shangri-La (paradise under construction) documentary by Mirka Duijn
A Tibetan tourist destination in China recently presented scientific proof that it is Shangri-La, a fictitious place in the classic novel, ‘Lost Horizon’. This film excavates layers of fact and fiction, and uncovers truths and lies of the place to find that the elusive (present day) truth is in the hands of the tourists and filmmakers themselves.
Rûzje Wyn (Ruis, wind) – Ester Eva Damen
A short, thirty minute film focusing on three Frisian poems, free in the visual form and not strictly illustrative. Elmar Kuyper, Nynke Laverman and Tsead Bruinja are contemporary Frisian poets and performers, performing with a band or electronic music. Filmmaker Ester Eva Damen, who grew up in Friesland, invited them to collaborate and connect the poems with her own memories.
