5 to 12 tells the story of friends Rinus Jossee and Kees Kortleve and their life and death challenges they face as older athletes in their 70-ties. Europe is getting older, people above 65 form the fastest growing population segment. This film explores how older athletes are coming to terms with fragility brought on by old age and how they define life as death creeps closer every day. The story takes place in the Netherlands. The filmmakers spend a couple of month exploring how Kees and Rinus do their best to maintain their quality of life by training for and participating in running events until a life changing event takes place.
“God, Church, Pills & Condoms” tells the story of a teenage mother in Manila and a controversial family planning law in the making for more than 16 years. The film premiered at the Cinemalaya Film Festival in Manila and again at the Hanoi International Filmfestival in 2012 and continues to tour various festivals.
This film is not appropriate for children who still believe in Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet.
This is a fine cut. Fine tuning of colour correction, sound-edit and timing are not yet done.
Every year the people of the Netherlands celebrate Sinterklaas.
An important part of the festivities is the figure of Zwarte Piet or Black Pete.
In 2014 a Dutch court ruled that the figure of Black Piet is a racial stereotype.
In 2015 the UN stated that even a ‘deeply rooted cultural tradition
does not justify discriminatory practices and stereotypes’
