do {not} touch: Opening Night feat. 7 Sounds

    Join IDFA DocLab & IDFA on Stage for the festive online opening of IDFA's new media program do {not} touch. With do {not} touch, we explore how artists search for new kinds of documentary art and human connection.

    During this opening night we kick off the program from our live streaming studio in Amsterdam with a broadcast that can be followed online all over the world. Before inviting you into our online, interactive exhibition (hosted on an experimental new social platform), we proudly present the world premiere of 7 Sounds, a one-time-only, online live performance by filmmaker Sam Green and musician JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN). In his distinctive, warm storytelling style, Green invites us to move away from our screens and takes us into a far-reaching ode to the invisible forces that surround us. The opening is free, accessible worldwide, but you do have to reserve an online ticket! (Ticket also provides access to a live DJ-set by JD Samson and the online opening party of the do {not} touch exhibition afterwards.)

    Practical note: One hour before the event starts, you will receive a reminder by email. Go to and log in with your MyIDFA account. You will find the do {not} touch: Opening night feat. 7 Sounds on the homepage. From 20 minutes before the show starts, you can press the button ‘Participate’. 

    7 Sounds is part of IDFA on Stage. This program is made possible by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and the Zabawas Foundation.
