CAMERAPERSON (2016-Kirsten Johnson)
USA, 1h 43min, film in many languages with English subtitles, UK 15 certificate.

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage collected over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. A hybrid work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker's personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.

13h.> Urban Farming (by Peter)

 

Are you concerned about our future? Climate change, resources dwindling, overpopulation? One issue that stands out in this context is food. There's more people in the world every day, more and more of these people live in the city, and they all need food. So looking at growing food in the city is the logical thing to do: Urban Farming.

We’re taking off where we ended last year. Or we start over to freshen everything up.

The key flow in this story is things you can do yourself, with household items and waste-products, with minimal effort and minimal knowledge.

Presentation + Demonstration in English (or Dutch if preferred)
