16 Mrt ILE at Movies that Matter
This week we’ll be part of the Film Festival Movies that Matter in The Hague.
During the weekend of 19-20 March we will show small clips of the film The Island of All Together and invite the visitors for a conversation with our Ambassadors. You can find us in front of Filmhuis Den Haag, where you can see some great films like “Those Who Feel the Fire Burning”. We will be opened between 13.00 – 21.00 (except for some short breaks once every while)
The Island of All Together:
Every summer many European tourists travel to the Greek island Lesbos for a sunny holiday. This year thousands of refugees crossed the sea from Turkey and arrived on the island as well, looking for a safe haven in the European Union. Filmmakers Philip Brink and Marieke van der Velden invited tourists and refugees to talk one another about life while sitting on a little bench overlooking the sea. The result is a short documentary with conversations of war, fleeing, home, work, love, but also cars and pets. It’s an ode to humanism and shows what happens when we take time to sit down and talk with each other in stead of about each other.
