Based in the Amsterdam region and no weekend plans yet? Then take your pick from the CinemAsia program for a film-filled weekend.
Whether you are looking for a Chinese blockbuster, animations, a Japanese food documentary, a love story, or something from the Philippines, South Korea or maybe Indonesia – you can find it in Amsterdam this weekend.
And, of course I can’t resist highlighting one of the films which has a responsible business theme to it. The movie Another Family portrays a South Korean story, in which a father confronts the company where his daughter was employed in one of the company’s factories. Having had poor health and safety procedures, the daughter fell ill and died after working here.
It is based on a true story in Korea, but could also have been a story from China or other Asian countries, where there are still regular reports of similar cases. Just this week, Dutch trade union FNV published about a case of a Chinese worker contracting aenemia after working with chemicals.
I look forward to catching some good films myself when I’m there on Saturday and Sunday. See you there?
