In The House is a short film that says more than most feature films, which is why we decided to begin the Festival with this film. It is poetic, painful and completely real. Again we are reminded of the importance of narratives but also that those are too often hidden, forgotten and made into a meaningless background noise to be suppressed with medication. How is it even possible to medicate away the memory of a child who died? Or the feeling of constantly experiencing being an outsider? Or to have been intimidated into silence? Do we think that it helps not to be asked what has happened, but instead getting a room in a corridor where many doors are closed, especially the one to the outer world? Arrive on time Friday 16 October, to see this movie!
