One Touch Dutch-Chinese Online Movie Festival

Yesterday Feibai was busy in the opening ceremony of the second One Touch Dutch-Chinese Online Movie Festival. It was hosted by the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, His Excellency Mr. Aart Jacobi, at the Beijing Film Academy. Many were involved in preparation and it was a very nice start with the children movie Fidgety Bram in the afternoon, having fun over Dutch cookies and soft drinks, and the documentary Raw Herring by Leonard Retel Helmrich. I really liked Leonard's movie and found it funny that in in the later discussion with him, and among each other, Chinese students found it puzzling not find the opinion the film maker expressed clear enough. I guess the Chinese audience is more used to a stricter guidance what to think. There are not many documentary movies, in the true sense of the meaning, produced in China. And they have to pass strict censorship rules, which request a clear, compliant opinion, and not leave much room for interpretation.
