Soon it’s this time of the year again: From September 25 – October 10, 2014, the Vancouver International Film Festival will screen almost 350 of the world’s finest films from more than 70 different countries. Also some Dutch and Belgian films are part of it. Here’s a small selevtion:

NewBoobsNew Boobs
Netherlands, 2013, 68min., directed by Sacha Polak
“The frankness of the title reflects Sacha Polak’s uncommon candour in this reflective, unsentimental and incredibly personal documentary. Having inherited a rare cancer gene, is a preventive mastectomy the answer for Polak? What if it’s all for naught and cancer never appears? Does such a surgery diminish or alter one’s feminity? Nearing the age at which cancer tragically claimed her mother, the filmmaker urgently searches for answers.” VIFF The Complete Guide

Screenings:
Oct 02, 10 pm, The Cinematheque
Oct 06, 2:45 pm, The Cinematheque
Oct 07, 7 pm, Rio Theatre

OutOfReachRainNightOut of Reach (Rain Night)
Belgium/Netherlands, 2014, 8 min., directed by Pablo Diartinez
Among the International Shorts: “A poet wanders around Brussels in this stunning collage of animation, graphics and text.” VIFF The Complete Guide

Screenings:
Oct 04, 6:30 pm, International Village #8
Oct 08, 12 pm, The Cinematheque

AboveUsAllAbove Us All
Netherlands/Belgium, 2014, 99 min., directed by Eugenie Jansen
“A daring formal experience lies at the heart of this exploration of loss. Eugenie Jansen films her own story – a young, half-aboriginal girl copes with being transplanted from Australia to Belgium after her mother’s death – in 50 fps 3D and uses 360-degree pans to evoke time’s inexorable movement. The result is a boundary-pushing drama that is affecting as it is bold in execution.” VIFF The Complete Guide

Screenings:
Oct 04, 7 pm Vancity Theatre
Oct 05, 1:30 pm Vancity Theatre

This episode is devoted to two important days coming up very soon: the Remembrance Day (May 4th) and the Liberation Day (May 5th) of The Netherlands.

Barbara Arnold visits the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre which was having a very special exhibition: “Enemy Aliens”. Nina Krieger, Executive Director, tells us that this exhibition adresses a very little known part of Canadian history: In Canada, during World War II, Jewish refugees from Germany, have been interned together with other prisoners of war due to their German nationality. They have been considered “Enemy Aliens”. While showing us around, Nina tells about the project and the story of certain exhibits.

For her interview, this time, Barbara is having two special guests. Dr. Robert Krell, Prof. Emeritus of Psychiatry, survived World War II as a Jewish child hidden in Holland. Bert Norden, Veteran and Creative Video Editor, served in the Dutch army during the war. Both tell about the very different lives they experienced during the time of the war in Holland, and emphasize the meaning of memory and that history is there for the next generations to learn from.
