Lise Akoka, Romane Gueret / FR, 2022 / 99 min.
This film-in-a-film follows a director making a drama about kids with problems. This moving debut brings us closer to the kids’ perspective on things as well as questioning filmmaking’s ethics.
Before The Worst Ones (Les pires), you will see the short film Bout de Zan en de krokodil (5') by Louis Feuillade from 1913. This manually coloured comedy in the series Bout-de-Zan is about a little boy who experiences all kinds of adventures. Bout-de-Zan takes revenge on a man who beats him. He does this by scaring him with the help of his dog dressed as a crocodile. Silent film with music from the Eye archive.
In Eye and national cinemas.

Screened at prominent national and international festivals, yet never released in Dutch cinemas. Quite unjustly so, Eye Filmmuseum thinks, and so it has once again brought an exceptional selection of films from international festivals to the Netherlands.
