To Celebrate Curaçao pride 4 movies:

Watamula
Watamula is a place where Curaçao breathes. It is also the destination of René, who emerges from a river and staggeringly continues his journey across the island. He comes across sharp thorns and sweet rose petals, meets with rejection and comfort, clutching the amulet he was given at birth. Visual artist and filmmaker Kevin Osepa, for whom the identity of young Afro-Caribbeans is an important subject, moulds this trip into a magical-realistic panorama bringing together landscape and fate, spirituality, sensuality and machismo.

E Yobida di Ayera (2016)
Monica is in love with her friend. Today they are meeting at the beach, just the two of them. Monica has finally found enough courage; this seems the perfect time to tell her. Is this the day she comes out of the closet?

Premier
The 8-minute drama tells the story about the first black prime minister of the Netherlands (played by actor Raymi Sambo), who is not allowed by his party to be open about his homosexuality.

Atlantis: the Rebirth
Atlantis Rebirth is a dance film documentary exploring where we have been as Caribbean people and where we would like to go. It includes both factual historical accounts as well as imagined future possibilities. It was directed and choreographed by Jonathan van Arneman and it features dancers from the National Institute of Arts in St Martin. Van Arneman:'when I choreograph for LGBT dancers, I let themin their reality.'

The Curaçaoan premiere of Salgá
An average day in Otrobanda changed drastically after a bang. Can a local journalist find out what happened?

Are you ready for SALGÁ?!
You’ve heard the commotion. You’ve seen the posts, the casting calls and the extensive outreach for support. Months of hard work and we are now finally ready to introduce our newest short film to you: Salgá (Salted)! The first ever short film completely produced, filmed and edited by the IBB. Students, staff and alumni came together to make this project a reality. Under the guidance of creative director Tittel del Mar students came up with their own story, wrote their own script and designed and made everything necessary for the film. Together with Fundashon Rif we casted all the extra actors from Otrobanda and made a film that is 100% Made in Curaçao!

Two movies about Caribbean Manhood, Art and Life!

Frank Martinaus Arion:
Arion's most read novel Dubbelspel is about a frantic dominoes match and a picture gradually emerges of the relationship between men and women in that island society. In the documentary, the Antillean machismo is the theme of a fierce and revealing discussion between seven Antillean men from diverse backgrounds. Contrary to that Arion in the film talks about the 'brave women' of the island, who also made the difference in his life and in his work.

Arion was above all a poet. Several examples of this can be heard and read in the documentary. Many of his poems are in Papiamentu. as a champion of this Antillean language, Arion founded a school on the island in which the children are taught in this language.

Frank Martinus Arion was born in Curaçao in 1936. He studied Dutch at the University of Leiden and Amsterdam. He obtained his doctorate in 1996 with The Kiss of a Slave, a dissertation on the relationship of Papiamentu with Western African languages and became professor at the University of Netherlands Antilles in 2009. In his novels and his poems, he gives a lively and loving image of Antillean society, but also provides criticism. Also the Netherlands, the former motherland, is not spared. In 2008 he returned his Royal decoration in protest against the 'Recolonization by the Netherlands'.

Directed by: Cindy Kerseborn
Language: Dutch, Papiamento
Subtitles: English

Patron
Malik and his mother Zoraya, immigrants from Curaçao who have moved to the Netherlands in search of a better life, live in a close-quarters social housing apartment and often butt heads. Malik sees Zoraya as only caring about herself, while Zoraya maintains Malik does not respect her. Their unwillingness to communicate or compromise pushes the two apart. Malik falls in with a group of neighbourhood boys, who explore abandoned buildings and bond over an oppressive societal system designed to hold them back. One night during a game of soccer, however, Malik provokes one of the other boys and ends up in a fight. Ostracised, Malik decides to move on from the neighbourhood. He meets a girl Aria and falls in love, able to express his feels and deeply connect with another person for the first time. Soon, though, Aria learns she’s expecting a child. Malik, blindsided and unsure of what to do, decides to return home to Zoraya for advice. Zoraya refuses to sympathise with Malik, explaining to him the cold hard reality of life, and leaving him on his own. Malik realises that no matter his circumstances, he is the only one that has control over his future. Malik steps up, confronting his problems with himself and the neighbourhood boys. Malik returns to Aria and transitions into his new life as a father, vowing to be a positive role model for his newborn child.
