Dutch films at Rome Film Fest

October 10, 2018

Light as Feathers
by Rosanne Pel and An Impossibly Small Object by David Verbeek have been selected for the upcoming Rome International Film Festival.
Both films will be part of the Official Selection and compete for the People Choice Award.

Light as Feathers (produced by Family Affair Films) is Rosanne Pel’s first feature. It is going to the Rome Film Fest after world premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival. Light as Feathers tells the story of 15-year-old Eryk who lives with his mother, grandmother and great grandmother in a goose-pluckers’ village in Poland called Osiecza Pierwsza. Eryk is in love with his 13-year-old neighbor Klaudia, in the film we follow him over several years, trying to win Klaudia’s heart. Although he doesn’t know how to draw a line between affection and abuse.

An Impossibly Small Object
by David Verbeek (a Taiwanese/Dutch/Croation co-production, NL co-producer: Lemming Film) celebrated its world premiere in the Big Screen Competition at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and was part of the Shanghai International Film Festival. An Impossibly Small Object shows how the life a 8-year old girl from Taipei and  the life of a 33-year-old photographer from Amsterdam are in some way entangled.

The 13th Rome Film Fest runs October 18 – October 28.
