Filmhuis Cavia presents two outdoor screenings in collaboration with WG-terrein on Pesthuislaan. On Friday 14 August a late 1970s musical comedy masterpiece runs through French (and European, American) colonial history, independence and civil rights movements from an Afro-Caribbean perspective. And on Saturday 15 August De Stilte rond Christine M. (A Question of Silence) deals with a group of women who have never met before but who together spontaneously murder a male shopkeeper. We follow a criminal psychiatrist’s interviews with the women to try to ascertain their sanity, and the ensuing court case, with surprising results.

Free entrance | Doors open at 21:30 | Films start at 22:00
Space limited to 50 max | Weelchair accessible

In case of bad weather the screening will be cancelled. Keep on eye on our website for the latest update.

De Stilte rond Christine M. (A Question of Silence) deals with a group of women who have never met before but who together spontaneously murder a male shopkeeper. We follow a criminal psychiatrist’s interviews with the women to try to ascertain their sanity, and the ensuing court case, with surprising results. The film examines women’s shared oppression under patriarchy and the effects of this. (London Feminist Film Festival).

Marleen Gorris' debut film from 1982 was controversial, won the Golden Calf as well as the Grand Prix of the Créteil International Women's Film Festival - and it became an instant feminist classic. Nearly 40 years after, it is still a relevant and intriguing film – and an piece of Amsterdam history, now that the prison, the Bijlmerbajes, has been torn down.
