Deze voorstelling maakt deel uit van Rialto Filmclub met als gastspreker deze maand Ernst-Jan Pfauth.


Eleven-year-old Kenza (Tiara Richards) lives with her father Ouira (Everon Jackson Hooi) and grandfather Weljo (Felix de Rooy) on a junkyard in the interior of Cura莽ao. The two men are opposites: Ouira is a resolute, rational police officer, while Weljo identifies with the original inhabitants and the spirituality of the island. When the relationship between Ouira and Weljo is increasingly brought to a head, the wayward Kenza is determined to find her own way between the two extremes. Ouira's down-to-earth mentality does not always provide her with what she needs and gradually she is opening up more and more to the mystical and comforting traditions of her grandfather.

Bulad贸 is directed by Ech茅 Janga, who also wrote the script together with Esther Duysker. The story is set in Band'abou Cura莽ao and is partly based on a local slave saga. By bringing this story to the big screen, this old storytelling tradition is continued.
