At Filmhuis Den Haag / with filmmaker ARASH T. RIAHI
On Saturday 23 April at 1 pm, the Dutch premiere of the film “OSKAR AND LILLI: WHERE NO ONE KNOWS US” (Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch) will take place.
The film by the well-known Austrian filmmaker/director Arash T. Riahi, based on a novel by Monika Helfer, is screened as part of the Eastern Neighbours Film Festival at Filmhuis Den Haag. The director Arash T. Riahi will be present and have a chat with the audience after the film.
“OSKAR AND LILLI: WHERE NO ONE KNOWS US” (Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch) is the moving story of two Chechen children who, after their mother collapses, are placed in different families. But their close bond and mutual love are so strong that they come up with various bright, often funny solutions and defy all bureaucratic obstacles with passion, imagination and humour. The face of Europe is reflected in this strong film.
An audience favourite in many countries, winner of the FIFEM Montreal Grand Prix, awarded the prestigious Max Ophüls Prize in Germany, and many other awards from professional, teen and children’s juries, this uniquely human, political, warm and charming story proves to touch the hearts of young people and adults alike.
The film will be screened again on Sunday 24 April at 3 pm. The film is suitable for young people aged 8 and up.
