‘Sissy’ or ‘fucking queer’. What one calls humour gives another reason to hide in the closet a little deeper. Nicolaas Veul’s exploration of the impact of homophobic abuse takes him to schools, soccer changing rooms and his own childhood.
Humour plays first fiddle in this well-filled programme on dead serious topics. In Pisnicht: The Movie, Nicolaas Veul examines the impact of terms of abuse like ‘sissy’ or ‘fucking queer’. Because what is humour to one is reason to hide in the closet a little deeper to another. Toe-curling situations with a socially critical edge tickle your funny bone in Vakkenvullers - Reclamelandsuper and Kramp - Sebastiaan de Krab. The Q&A will discuss the making of films and address tough subjects like discrimination and prejudice.
