WORLDPREMIERE: Elias - Lucas van der Rhee
The demand to conform to a binary gender system and a heterosexual norm prove challenging for children and youth who do not fit the mold. The short films feature young protagonists in the midst of self-discovery as well as rebellion toward the narrow societal attitudes toward gender stereotypes and sexuality.

Het binaire gender systeem en de heteroseksuele norm van de huidige maatschappij zijn veeleisend voor kinderen en jongeren die zichzelf hier niet in herkennen. Deze korte films belichten jongeren die zichzelf ontplooien en afzetten tegen de beperkende maatschappelijke houding omtrent gender stereotypering en seksualiteit.

The short film screening includes the films:
Shala (dir. João Inacío)
Escaping Agra (dir. Pallavi Somusetty)
I Don't Like Her (dir. Javad Daraei)
Min Homosyster (dir. Lia Hietala)
Çocuk Oyuncağı / Child's Play - short film (dir. Gizem Bayıksel)
ELIAS (dir. Lucas van der Rhee).

The film ELIAS will have its world premiere at this screening. The directors Gizem Bayıksel and Lucas van der Rhee will be present for a Q&A.
