Studium Generale Movie: OINK

  • Tuesday June 13th

  • 19.30-21.30

  • Zwarte Doos

Babs receives a cute piglet as a gift from an unknown grandfather who lived in America for many years. The old man pretends to be friendly, but he seems strangely interested in piglet Knor. Surely this has nothing to do with his past as a butcher? This veg-friendly stop-motion film is packed with humor, is beastly well made and is just incredibly fun for all ages.

This film will be shown in the presence of Knor animator Jasper Kuipers, who will give a short introduction about the making of the film.

Wednesday June 14th

Eco-Anxiety Workshop

  • Wednesday June 14th

  • 14.00-17.00

  • Metaforum

How much do you think climate change really affects you? 🤔⁠ ⁠

Or do you not care at all? 🤷⁠ ⁠

It can be quite difficult to grasp what it truly means that our climate is changing. Actions need to be taken on a global scale to slow down the change and halt it. But during everyday life, nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. ⁠ ⁠

If you’ve ever wondered or had doubts about your future because of climate change, this is for you. ⁠

Studium Generale Docu: Wolf

  • Wednesday June 14th

  • 19.30-21.30

  • Zwarte Doos

This documentary takes a clear position in the wolf debate and actively tries to improve the wolf’s bad reputation, both in real life and in fairy tales. It’s interesting to see a film that so clearly expresses the positive sides of the wolf’s return to the Netherlands. Moreover, the film contains breathtaking shots of Dutch nature. We’ve never seen the Netherlands through the eyes of a wolf before, and boy-oh-boy does it look magnificent. After the film, director Cees van Kempen will join us for a Q&A. Van Kempen will answer questions from the audience and enlighten us on the difficulties of filming an animal famous for its ability to stay hidden.
