Year round 2024

IFFR and Library Rotterdam will screen the short film Book and Knife (2023) together with filmmaker Miku Sato on Saturday 30 June 2024 at 14.00. This is a free event. Bring a neighbour or a friend and experience the beauty of Rotterdam, also on the cinema screen!

About Book and Knife
Soto, also known as saoto, is a soup that is enjoyed throughout the countries of Indonesia and Suriname. Every recipe has its own cultural-historical roots and instructions for preparation vary from cookbook to cookbook. Portrayed as if they were shadow puppets, we witness three women preparing various recipes from books published between 1902 and 1967. They finish with the soto/saoto as served today by restaurant Warung Mini.

The screening of Book and Knife is accompanied by an activity in which participants will learn how to think of characters and how to develop them? What kinds of decision making go into making a film, and what is the motivation behind these creative decisions?

The workshop will be given in English. The film is in Indonesian and Dutch with English subtitles. There’s a limited capacity, so please reserve your seats before through the link below.
