Teledoc Campus - Als ik zelf de zon ben

Director: Naomi White
In this intimate film portrait, stage performer Djuwa Mroivili explores her relationship to the traditional and white world of classical music. The classically trained pianist gains new insights and radically chooses a new path.
Pianist Djuwa Mroivili was one of the few students of colour during her classical music training at the conservatory. As a black musician, she played music by white composers there. In this documentary, she explores her relationship with the traditionally white world of classical music. When Mroivili starts a historical research of the 1883 World Expo, an exhibition that did not just display machines, but also people from Dutch colonies, Mroivili discovers bewildering parallels between this World Expo and the current programming of classical music.
