Beeld voor Beeld is the Festival for Visual Anthropology and will be held for the 17th time in 2006. From June 7 till June 11, several movies and documentaries with a cultural focus will be shown at the Tropentheater in Amsterdam.
Beeld voor Beeld (Image by Image) positions itself at the crossroads of visual anthropology, documentary filmmaking and politics. The first films ever made were of a documentary nature. This documentary character has strongly influenced the history of cinema.
Beeld voor Beeld wants to create understanding for other cultures, other ways of life, other individuals, and contribute, even modestly, to the diminishing of the growing polarization between different groups, which often comes forth out of a lack of knowledge of the ‘Other’. And all this, of course, by showing beautiful films and talking extensively to the makers.
