Dutch Docs at CPH:DOX 2019

19 March 2019

No less than seven Dutch documentaries and co-productions have been selected for CPH:Dox 2019, three of which will celebrate their world premiere at the festival.

The Last Male on Earth, director Floor van der Meulen’s first feature documentary, will celebrate it’s world premiere in Next:Wave section. The film, produced by Een van de Jongens, tells the story of the last male specimen of a rare rhinoceros, who is surrounded by a human tragicomedy.

Also part of the Next:Wave competition is Aboozar Amini’s debut Kabul, City in the Wind. The film produced by Silk Road Film Salon, was selected as IDFA’s Opening film and received the IDFA Special Jury Award for First Appearance

Robert Oey's The Good Terrorist (prod. Zeppers Film) will world premiere in the F:Act Award section. In the film, a former Islamic fundamentalist changes from a hateful and spiteful jihadist to a free citizen who renounces violence.

Screening in the CPH:Science section is Are You There? directed by Maartje Nevejan. The film is co-produced by Cerutti Film and Zeppers Film and will also world premiere in Copenhagen. Are You There? is part of a transmedia project about the often misunderstood and frightening experience which both children and adults can experience during an epileptic seizure. By using art and media, the filmmaker tries to brings us closer to understanding what happens during the moments of mental absence.

Bellingcat - Truth in a Post-truth World, directed by Hans Pool and produced by Submarine will screen in the CHANGE section. Furthermore, two minority Dutch co-productions have been selected for the festival. Freedom Fields by Naziha Arebi and Sakawa by Ben Asamoah and co-produced by Pieter van Huystee Film (NL).

Lastly, two Dutch projects will be presented at CPH:Forum: A Wonderful Horrible Story, a new hybrid documentary by Guido Hendrikx (produced by Lemming Film) and All-In, a minority co-production by Halal Docs.

CPH:Dox will take place in Copenhagen (Denmark) from 20-31 March 2019.
