In an ode to the recently deceased master director Nicolas Roeg, best known for his films The Man Who Fell To Earth (starring David Bowie) and Don’t Look Now, DNR Filmclub is screening another classic from Roeg’s heyday called Walkabout. A father takes his kids, who grew up in the city, to the Australian outback. They flee when they find out their father intends to murder them. Lost in an unknown wilderness, the brother and sister are found by an Aboriginal boy who helps them find their way back to civilisation. Without judgement, the filmmaker explores the misunderstandings that arise as a result of language and culture.
Ben Terwel (1989) is the programme coordinator of We Are Public for Delft, Leiden and The Hague. Next to that, he also curates the crossover and experimental music selection. Together with the rest of the curators, he works to ensure that these cities' critical programming remains up to par. He graduated from the interdisciplinary Interfaculty of ArtScience at the Royal Conservatoire and Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2012. There he educated himself as a sound artist and performer, with an emphasis on electro-mechanical installations and musical instruments. Over the course of time, he developed a broad and playful interest for the role of art in the twenty-first century, especially when it comes to technology, ecology, food, physicality and democracy.
