Due to success: extra screening Uit 't Leven at Roze Filmdagen
Both screenings of Uit 't Leven by director Tim Dekkers are now sold out. Reason to celebrate with an extra screening!
According to figures from 113 Suicide Prevention, the number of suicide attempts among gay, lesbian and transgender people is four to ten times higher than in the general population. Yet talking about this seems to be a taboo within the LGBTIQ+ community. Documentary maker Tim Dekkers and screenwriter Henk Burger want to break through that.
For two years they followed three main characters who have gone through an ink-black period of depression and attempted suicide. Can acrobat Jean, model/trans woman Solange and city councilor Kris manage to get their lives back on track and set an example for others? The result is a gripping documentary of eighty minutes, which Dekkers and Burger want to screen at the many LGBTIQ+ film festivals around the world.
The extra screening of Uit 't Leven will run on Sunday, April 2 at 11:00 AM in Het Ketelhuis in Amsterdam. Buy your tickets here now
