Dutch docs at Visions Du Reel 2016

23 March 2016

Dutch documentaries selected for Nyon Visions du Réel

Five Dutch productions and co-productions will screen at the International Documentary Film Festival Visions du Réel. The festival takes place in Nyon (Switzerland), 15-23 April 2016.

Need for Meat by Marijn Frank and Land of the Enlightened by Pieter-Jan de Pue are selected for the Grand Angle program. Need for Meat, produced by IDTV Docs, world premiered at IDFA (International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam) and had its international premiere at the Berlinale in Kulinarisches Kino, the culinary section of the festival. The filmmaker, herself a young mother, tries to kick her meat habit with the help of a slaughterer and a psychologist. Land of the Enlightened, co-produced by Submarine, premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR). In the film, a gang of Afghan kids from the Kuchi tribe dig out old Soviet mines and sell the explosives to children working in a lapis lazuli mine.

Selected for Mid-Length Competition are My Own Private War by Lidija Zelovic and
Up or Out by Jonah Honer. In My Own Private War a filmmaker from former Yugoslavia asses how war trauma not only effects her own life, but also creates a frontline within her family. The film will have its world premiere at the festival. In Up or Out two brothers think that they have found a golden investment formula. Up or Out will have its international premiere at Visions du Réel and is also selected for HotDocs.

Peter Greenaway has been named Maître du Réel
at Visions du Réel this year and is honored by the festival with a lifetime achievement award. His film   Eisenstein in Guanajuato will be shown during the festival.
