Composition
Nusa Ina

Nusa Ina

The pain of postcolonial rootlessness is palpable in the story of Loey Tamaëla, a Moluccan whose father was a Sergeant Major in the Dutch colonial army. He hopes one day to leave the Netherlands and return to a free homeland.
Hotel Mokum

Hotel Mokum

Squatters move into a vacant hotel in Amsterdam, and make the building habitable. But after six weeks, the riot police arrive to throw them out. Nonetheless, the fight for the right to housing continues, because ideals can never be evicted.
The Story of Ne Kuko

The Story of Ne Kuko

Around 1878, a nkisi was stolen from Congolese chief Ne Kuko. Not only was the theft of this object with spiritual powers a great loss for Ne Kuko, it also disrupted the local community.
Frontlight
Frontlight showcases films that critically examine the truth and artistically explore the urgent issues of our time.
