Spiegel premieres at the NFF!

The new documentary 'Spiegel' by Eva Sjerps will premiere on 23 September during the Teledoc Campus screenings at the NFF.


In this intimate documentary you can see how horses from a small herd are used for coaching sessions with young people with various problems. The horses respond to incoherence between behavior and underlying feeling, causing the young people to confront underlying patterns, themes and feelings. How do the horses react to the youngsters? And what does the reaction of the horses bring about in the young people? The sessions are closely observed and visualized in a sensory way.


During the first block of the Teledoc Campus films, from 13:00 to 15:10, 'Spiegel' will be screened. Tickets will soon be available on the NFF website.

BROADCAST Trapped in a Drawing – 2 February 20:26 on NPO 2

The film about cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer, directed by Carin Goeijers, will be shown on Thursday 2 February at 20:26 on NPO 2.

Political cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer does not shy away from confrontation. With his engaged drawings he stimulates the public debate. In addition to discussion, it also generates numerous threats, especially via social media. This leads to him even being under police protection for some time. When he posted a drawing of Turkish President Erdogan on Twitter in 2017, the first death threats poured in. Freedom of expression is very dear to Oppenheimer and he is obsessed with his work, but where is the line? At what price is he willing to sacrifice his personal freedom for the sake of his artistic freedom?
