ROBERT ROMBOUT - MASTER CLASS
During this Masterclass Rob Rombout will talk about the role of the director in a documentary. On the one hand he’s a technician, a professional; on the other hand, the author, storyteller, the one who signs the work. An artist, so also a filmmaker “has something to tell”, so we start from his perception of reality. Method, Intentions, aesthetics but also ethics and will be elements of this Masterclass.
He will show excerpts of his films in which he will compare intentions and results. Above all, Robert wants you all to participate in this Masterclass, with questions at any time (even at the beginning) as it is supposed to be an interactive event.

MIKLÓS RADNÓTI - HUNGARIAN POETRY
Miklós Radnóti is one of the most outstanding Hungarian poets. His life was tragically short, only 35 years, but he made a huge and ever lasting impact on our literature, on our spirituality. With the presentation of Radnóti’s work, we try to bring his thinking, his feelings, his spirit closer to you.
The entire life of Radnóti was about struggle. Struggle for survival, struggle for finding his place in a seemingly alien world. During his birth he lost his mother and twin brother. Later, at the age of 12, he lost his father. Born in a Jewish family he wanted to become a part of the majority Christian community. He was witnessing the horrors of World War II and he died in November 1944, as a Holocaust victim.
