A Dutch filmmaker returns to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Can – or should - he, with his western origin, make a film about this traumatised country? Thought-provoking, award-winning documentary about representation and colonialism.
A challenging programme on representation. How can images confirm or counteract stereotypes and prejudices? In Stop Filming Us, the director struggles with these questions. He makes a documentary on Congo, but is not sure if he as a filmmaker of western origin is the right person to do so. In the short Kramp - Sebastiaan de Krab, an actor of colour gets an embarrassing assignment at a casting. Excruciating humour and cringing guaranteed!
