Discover the exhibition

In the exhibition Vive le cinéma!, five major filmmakers from five different continents explore the boundaries of their own work and of film art in general. There is an online class for secondary school students to accompany the work of one of these makers.

Three dimensional

In Vive le cinema!, filmmakers Lucrecia Martel (South America), Nanouk Leopold (Europe), Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese (Africa), Carlos Reygadas (North America) and Jia Zhang-ke (Asia) present new work that makes use of the potential of the three-dimensional exhibition space rather than the two-dimensional screen. They leave the beaten track of the ‘ordinary’ narrative feature film and research the language and potential of film.

Online class: expanded cinema

There is an online class available for havo and the fourth and fifth grades of vwo . In Expanded Cinema – Beyond the Boundaries of Film, pupils test the potential and limits of cinema by engaging in active assignments and dialogue. They investigate the various forms film can take.
This class centres around the work of artist Daan Emmen and filmmaker Nanouk Leopold. The two will talk about the creative process, inviting the pupils to take part in an experimental assignment. Can they make a film using only light and sound?

Pupils create their own film experience, either at home or in the classroom, using the soundscape from the installation by Emmen and Leopold and ordinary objects such as phones, pens, paper and lamps.
