Khata

The dreamy and gentle adolescent Kamal works with his older brother Hatim as a boy prostitute around Rotterdam Central Station. When Kamal falls in love with a male customer, the situation seems to escalate completely.
Down by the Water

Water is one of nature’s most powerful and versatile forces. It can destroy lives but it can also help you relax and clear your mind. See how the water flows in the following films. Sometimes it’s ebb, sometimes it’s flow...
Mind Games

Bit by bit scientists get a grip on how our human brain works but there are still some undiscovered spots. These films show the variety of our very own brain defects. Some are smaller than others and sometimes they put a smile on your face.
The Man Who Can't be Moved

In times of #MeToo and gender equality, a man can feel confused about his manhood. Let’s have a look at some vulnerable stories from a man’s point of view, including sports, isolation, crime, and some comedy, of course.
Modern Myths

People used to tell great stories that have now become well-known myths. We selected some beautiful new ones for you which feature strong heroes and beautiful creatures.
Let Me Entertain You

What do you like to do in your spare time? Our main characters love dancing, all-inclusive trips, spending time with friends, and some good old bingo. Oh, we forgot one; making babies!
Part of Me

When you are stuck in social and psychological patterns it’s not easy to find your way out. These characters take you on a dark journey to try and escape these patterns. Do you dare to join them?
Colourful Rebels

The night has always been full of mysteries. In the dark, we dare to let ourselves go and we can experience great loneliness when we think nobody can see us. Be ready for some colourful scenery and hidden secrets during the night time.
