IFFR presents: This Is Where Reconstruction Starts

Film talent inspired by post-war reconstruction

The theme for the city of Rotterdam in 2016 is Rotterdam Celebrates the City! Inspired by 75 years of reconstruction, we will be celebrating the city we know today and looking to the future. As part of this programme, International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) presents the project This Is Where Reconstruction Starts. Six young, leading international filmmakers were asked to make a short fiction or creative essay film around themes concerning reconstruction. These films will première during IFFR 2016.

Specially for Rotterdam Celebrates the City! IFFR selected six young film talents who have made a promising start to their careers in the international circuit in recent years. Each of them has made a short film that takes the theme of post-war reconstruction as its inspiration.

“This is an extremely topical theme. In a society that is constantly in flux, it is important that we take a good look at ourselves, how we treat others and how we can build a society together. These projects bring together ideas that concern reconstruction in surprising ways; the ability of cities and people to constantly renew,” according to IFFR festival director Bero Beyer.

The starting point for the short films is Rotterdam as a crossroads for many different cultures. Four international filmmakers will each tell a story of (young) people about to complete one phase of their lives and embark upon a new one in Rotterdam. The following filmmakers have boarded the project: Daniel Aragão from Brazil (I Swear I’ll Leave This Town); Ying Liang from China (When Night Falls); Mira Fornay from Slovakia (My Dog Killer); Yassine El Idrissi from Morocco (The Iranian Film).

Two Dutch filmmakers, Guido van Driel (The Resurrection of a Bastard) and Aboozar Amini (KabulTehranKabul), will both make films from the opposite perspective, starting at the moment of arrival of people who have left their homes to start anew somewhere else – and help shape the future of that city.

This is Where Reconstruction Starts is produced by IFFR in coproduction with Smarthouse Films and in cooperation with Warnier Posta and Haghefilm.
