This short film will be shown before the following features:
Mathijs Poppe (born in 1990 in Ghent, Belgium) studied at the Youth Initiative Program in Sweden and at the School of Arts in Ghent (KASK). He is also co-founder of Classroom Alive: A 6-month walking school across Europe. The documentaries Mathijs has directed mostly revolved around the relationship between himself and the film’s subjects/characters/actors. Meanwhile, in his latest project, OURS IS A COUNTRY OF WORDS, Mathjis moves beyond while searching for a new relationship between himself and the representation of Palestinian refugees who are mostly displayed as victims within Western media, only as the starting point.
