Well-known filmmaker Marijn Poels is visiting VHL to show his new documentary 'The uncertainty has settled'. Afterwards, we'll have a Q&A with him, and conclude the evening at Sem's cafe.
What is 'the uncertainty has settled'?
After eight years of travelling through conflict and poverty zones, Marijn Poels - a progressive filmmaker/journalist - decides to take some time off. In the Austrian mountains no less. It confronts him unexpectedly with the roots of agriculture and its modern day perspective. Globalisation and climate politics are causing radical changes such as farmers becoming energy suppliers.
But the green ideology raises questions. The scientific topic of climate change has now become incontrovertibly a matter of world politics. Poels faces a personal conflict. Are we doing the right thing?
At VHL, in D004. If there is enough interest, we might move to the chapel.
Because Marijn is widely regarded as an excellent filmmaker? Because 'the uncertainty has settled' has won multiple awards, like 'best documentary feature' at the Berlin independant film festival? Because you might find it interesting to see another perspective on environmental issues? Or because this might be an excellent opportunity to ask a sceptic some difficult questions!
