 still_4_10_1.jpg?itok=O0ORjhL6&c=1bc988801e822161db0493c76fa7e587

Voices includes the following programmes:

  • Big Screen Competition
  • Limelight
  • Scopitone
  • Rotterdämmerung
  • Voices (features)
  • Voices short 

Here you’ll find the first Voices films confirmed for IFFR 2019.

Memories of My Body, Garin Nugroho, 2018

A sensitive Javanese boy explores his sexual identity through a dance company where male and female merge in a sensual way. In the wider world around him – Suharto has just resigned – he sees only violence and intolerance. A poetic-realistic coming-of-age story, based on the life of dancer Rianto.

Memories of My Body

Tel Aviv on Fire, Sameh Zoabi, 2018

At the Israeli border when Salem mentions that he works on a popular TV series, the checkpoint official demands a more pro-Jewish twist to the romance in the soap. However this turns out to be easier said than done. A surprisingly light and comical way of capturing the Arab-Israeli conflict, which nevertheless tackles a painful truth.

 

 

Ombligo de agua, Laura Baumeister, 2019

Young, well-off overachiever Alina seeks solace in the arms of people who’ve had less luck in life.

The Big Screen Competition is an extension of the enduring partnership between IFFR and VPRO. IFFR 2018’s winner was Nina by Olga Chajdas.
