Onzichtbaar / Invisible (2023)

Onzichtbaar / Invisible (2023)

Heart-felt documentary by Gabriëlle Provaas about people who clean for a living. The soundtrack is by Bas Bron (Fatima Yahama, de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig) and will be released during ADE 2023.


About Onzichtbaar / Invisible:

All day and all night long, we in the Netherlands generate countless amounts of garbage. Cans, food waste, garbage, plastic packaging, delivery boxes (more and more), excrement, office garbage, full garbage cans on airplanes and trains. They are mountains of waste if you could see them all together. But we can't. The garbage is collected, swept away, cleaned, disposed of and destroyed by an army of cleaners at an ever-increasing rate, with great efficiency. When they have passed, our world looks as we experience it every day: clean and uncluttered. You could almost get the deceptive feeling that you are a clean person in a clean world. But in reality, what those cleaners have picked up for you, what they find and what they do with it and where all those piles of trash remain, including yours, we simply no longer perceive that. What does our world actually look like when it has not yet been cleaned up? What if we take the viewer with the camera into the dirty underbelly of the Netherlands. In its fullness. And we look at ourselves through the eyes of its cleaners? What kind of world do we live in then?

This event is free to attend for ADE Pro Pass holders. Limited number of seats available. The venue reserves the free seats up to 15 minutes before the start of the program. Make sure you claim your ticket on time at the frontdesk of EYE.

Join Fatima Yahama at Parallel after the screening, for an Onzichtbaar inspired liveset.

Eye Filmmuseum

Eye is sometimes called ‘the cinematic memory of the Netherlands’. And in all modesty, that title is no exaggeration.

On the North bank of the river IJ, you can find the film museum Eye. You can go to the movies and much more. Visit exhibitions about filmmakers and light and video artists, browse through the huge film collection and do a film quiz or pop down in the restaurant with breathtaking views over the IJ.
