Raak mij aan! Touch me!

Award-winning social drama about poverty and irresponsible parenting.

But because of the energetic and lifelike leads of six-year-old Brooklynn Prince and 23-year-old Bria Vinaite, it is never heavy or preachy. Shot on location in a budget motel by director Sean Baker, who had already caught the eye a few years ago with his transgender drama Tangerine, shot entirely on iPhone 5S. Actor Willem Dafoe deservedly received a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination for his (supporting) role as no-nonsense motel manager Bobby.

With introduction

“Beauty lurks even in the ruins of a life in poverty—if one dares to look.” 
The film will be introduced by Lara Perski. The introduction will be held in English.

Cinematic Beauty

“Beauty alone makes the whole world happy, and each and every being forgets its limitations while under its spell,” the poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller claimed. Cinema is particularly well-suited for delightful encounters with beauty. During the Cinematic Beauty film program we watch seven films, with an introduction, each of which sheds a different light on beauty. In collaboration with the University of Groningen.
