In this episode, Annick van Rinsum speaks with Orwa Nyrabia: the artistic director of IDFA: The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. They talk about how he started Dox Box to bring documentary as an art form to Syria, about the role of the international film community, about the humbling function of art when we allow it to teach us that we cannot fully understand everything but that we can still open ourselves up to new experiences, and about imagination at the center of what it means to be human.
Curious about IDFA’s documentaries? Come to Pakhuis de Zwijger any or every evening from the 5th until the 15th of juli at 10 p.m. to watch an IDFA documentary at our open air cinema.
