IDFA x Tolhuistuin

    • set 6 items

    These days, the world is within reach of us all – but it is also dashing headlong into a new reality. Are we broadening our horizons, or stuck in our own little cocoons? Three documentaries will show us how their main characters are trying to adapt to the new situation in their own ways, both in the West and in Africa. Privileges, dreams and reality clash and morality is under pressure. An evening of film and sidebar programmes.
