In Louis Hartlooper and Springhaver you can see the best foreign language films with English subtitles at our monthly screenings: Language no problem. This means that people who don’t understand Dutch can now also enjoy a French, Dutch, Italian or Danish production. The selection for this programme is not random. We will always choose a film we feel is a must-see for everyone. For example, in October we showed the opening picture of the Netherlands Film Festival for 2018: Niemand in de stad (No one in the city) by Michiel van Erp. In November we showed a big favourite from the Cannes Film Festival: Girl by Lukas Dhont. As always films from Britain or the US will still be shown in their original language with Dutch subtitles.
Roma | Alfonso Cuarón
The most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), Roma follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón's first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013. Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival 2018 and 2 Golden Globes for: Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director. Nominated for 10 Oscars and 7 BAFTA's.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki's Capharnaüm ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain (Zain al Rafeea), a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life. The movie follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets, takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil (Yordanos Shiferaw) and her baby son, Yonas (Boluwatife Treasure Bankole), being jailed for a crime, and finally, seeks justice in a courtroom. Capharnaüm was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own.
