TransitieCinema organizes July 13 the screening of “Speed – in search of lost time”

SYNOPSIS:
It’s a paradox. Never before have we worked more efficiently. Never before have we saved time with more sophisticated technologies. But nearly everyone feels they don’t have enough time.

Florian Opitz tries to track down the reasons for our lack of time and the constant acceleration of our lives. He reveals a disturbing picture of a civilisation that has disposed of all brake systems and goes blindly for unlimited and eternal growth – no matter what the consequences. But Opitz also tries to find the good life. In the niches of the global capitalism he discovers alternatives to the rat race.

Engels:
This tribute to the human imagination takes the form of an indictment of hierarchical education systems aimed at competition and quantifiable results. This documentary essay quotes education expert Sir Ken Robinson at the start: “I believe that we systematically destroy this capacity [for imagination] in our children and in ourselves.” The film identifies similar complaints from China to France. Yang Dongping, educational science professor at the Institute of Technology in Beijing, regrets the rise of market-thinking in the Chinese education system. “Today, everyone is sucked into a spiralling vortex of competition.” On the other side, German education expert Andreas Schleicher is in favor of the international standardization of student testing. His arguments are rebutted by German brain researcher Gerald Hüther, French creative educator Arno Stern – whose son André never attended school but ended up doing just fine as a guitar builder – and Pablo Pineda Ferrer, star of the 2009 feature Yo también and the first European student with Down syndrome to graduate from a university. In between the interviews, the documentary intersperses images of rigid and repetitive exteriors and interiors, and scenes of nature and children at play. In the end, they’re they’re the ones this is all about.

Nederlands:
Een ode aan de menselijke verbeelding, in de vorm van een aanklacht tegen hiërarchisch, op competitie en kwantificeerbare resultaten gericht onderwijs. Deze essayistische documentaire neemt de stelling van onderwijsexpert Sir Ken Robinson als uitgangspunt: we beschikken over de buitengewone kracht van de verbeelding, maar dit talent vernietigen we systematisch in onze kinderen en in onszelf. De film treft van China tot Frankrijk dezelfde klachten.
Regisseur Erwin Wagenhofer benadert grote thema’s van onze tijd op een originele en radicale manier. Hij stelt in Alphabet de vraag hoe we in de huidige crisissen terecht zijn gekomen. Waarom zijn we ongelukkig terwijl we alles hebben? Is de opzet en kwaliteit van ons onderwijs een deel van het probleem?

Slavernij is tegenwoordig wereldwijd verboden. Dit betekent echter niet dat het is verdwenen.
Ondanks internationale verdragen bestaat slavernij nog steeds in de 21ste eeuw. Deze vorm van moderne slavernij is niet alleen illegaal, maar vaak ook praktisch onzichtbaar.

The Justice Conference op vrijdag 11 en zaterdag 12 november wil hier verandering in brengen door mensen na te laten denken over de bijdrage die zij kunnen leveren om hun eigen omgeving eerlijker te maken.

Als onderdeel van dit evenement zal op 12 november een filmscreening worden gehouden. Het doel is om mensen te informeren en kritisch na te laten denken over de doordringende effecten van illegale praktijken binnen de kledingindustrie. Praktijken die misschien dichter bij huis komen dan de geografische ligging doet vermoeden. Hiermee hopen wij een brug te slaan tussen het onbekende concept van moderne slavernij en ons comfortabele hedendaagse westerse leven.

Naast het vertonen van deze relevante film zal een spreker deelnemers voorzien van context en achtergrondinformatie.

Er zal daarnaast ook ruimte zijn voor discussie, in de vorm van een groepsdiscussie én nabespreking in de bar van de Bazaar of Ideas, Hoefkade 11 in Den Haag waar het evenement zal plaatsvinden.

Wanneer: 12 november 19:00
Waar: Bazaar of Ideas, Den Haag
Entree = donatie voor IJM: EUR 5,00
Wat: Film+ lezing van specialist + nabespreking

Alle opbrengsten komen ten goede aan het werk van IJM

Just Movies with ”The True Cost” IJM Fundraiser 12 november 7 pm

In our 21st century slavery is legally banned on a worldwide scale. Unfortunately, its global disappearance is still to be achieved. Despite international treaties, slavery still exist today in not only an illegal but also hidden fashion. The Justice Conference on Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th of November wants to bring about a change in this discourse by letting a select audience think about possible contributions they can make in make within their own environment.

As a part of this event, a film screening will take place on the 12th of November. The aim is to inform people, whilst making them take a critical look at the pervasive nature of illegal practices in the clothing industry. These practices may seem far removed from our geographical location, yet in reality come closer to home than one might think. By the means of his film screening we hope to raise awareness of the interlinked nature of the concept of modern slavery and a comfortable western lifestyle. In addition to screening the film there will be a guest speaker to both provide an introductory context and answer questions afterwards. This lecture and part of the Q&A will be in Dutch, but the movie should still be reason enough to join in for both an interesting and interactive night!

We look forward to welcoming you at the Bazaar of Ideas, Hoefkade 11 in The Hague.

When: November 12, 7pm
Where: Bazaar of Ideas, The Hague
Entrance = donation for IJM: EUR 5,00
What: Film screening + Dutch guest lecture + Q&A
