Het Zaad van Karbaat

De driedelige documentaireserie Het Zaad van Karbaat vertelt het ongelooflijke verhaal van wijlen dokter Jan Karbaat die in meer dan 65 gevallen zijn patiënten insemineerde met zijn eigen sperma. Hoe heeft dit kunnen gebeuren en hoe heeft het de betrokkenen hun levens veranderd? 

Het nieuws dat wijlen vruchtbaarheidsarts Jan Karbaat zijn eigen zaad gebruikte om meer dan 65 van zijn patiënten te insemineren, schokte de wereld. Het Zaad van Karbaat vertelt hoe dat kon gebeuren en hoe het nieuws de moeders, nazaten, en betrokkenen raakt; het emotionele trauma van het leren leven met een veranderde genetische afkomst. Middels Karbaat’s verhaal, verkent de driedelige serie het nature vs. nurture debat, de wens voor onsterfelijkheid, en de morele vraagstukken omtrent anoniem donorschap.

The European

'The European' is a behind-the-scenes portrait of Frans Timmermans. Filmmaker Dirk-Jan Roeleven follows him for nearly two years, from his appointment as Vice-President of the European Commission in 2014 to the Brexit referendum. As he is filmed in taxis, planes and cheerless hotel rooms, he talks openly about his assertiveness and the qualities of a good diplomat. After the screening, journalist Marcia Luyten discusses the making of the film with director Dirk Jan Roeleven.

The End of Fear

Who's still afraid of red, yellow and blue? The most famous abstract painting of the twentieth century has invoked much more than just one response to this provocative question. Fifty years after 'Who's Afraid of Red , Yellow and Blue III', we question the meaning of art over the life of this famous, celebrated and mourned work by Barnett Newman.

Me alone in the classroom

Me alone in the classroom is a portray of young people of color in The Netherlands. How do they see themselves? How do they experience their interaction with white Dutch people? How do they see their future in The Netherlands? To tell this story, Karin Junger created a 'pressure cooker' by bringing her children and their friends together in a house for a week and ask them to re-enact their experiences for the camera. She used drama therapy techniques so that they really go through the experiences again so you can see and feel how it affects them.

Satudarah-One Blood

International motorcycle gang Satudarah frequently makes the headlines in Holland, Spain, Germany and Indonesia because of alleged criminal activities. The club is also said to be at war with the Hell's Angels. Like with all outlaw motor gangs, the secretive world of Satudarah is notoriously difficult to enter. EMMY- and BAFTA-winning filmmakers Joost van der Valk and Mags Gavan were given unique access to the club. Their film shows not only the violence embedded within its culture but also the more fragile side of its members.

Keeping & Saving - or how to live

Genomineerd voor Gouden Kalf 2018

For as long as she can remember director Digna Sinke has been keeping all kinds of things, from sugar sachets to old newspapers. Together with her 92-year-old mother she tries to find out where this need comes from. The kept things turn out to be time machines recalling memories that had all but faded.

But something is changing. Digitization has created the possibility of a completely different way of life. Digna goes in search of the new human, who no longer cares about material things, but about experiences: digital nomads and minimalists who own nothing but a passport, a bank card, a laptop computer and a smartphone.

My fucking problem

My fucking problem is a documentary about four women for who penetration is painful. One of these women is the director. The impact of the handicap is big. A lot of women undergo therapy to find out what exactly is going on down there. They have to make difficult decisions in their love-life. Their image of themselves is thoroughly damaged.

What does is feel like to miss out on something tof which you can only imagine what it is like through what you hear from others and see in the media? An image that is far from reality. Why wouldn't you be able to be happy without penetration? How important is it really?
