TNC FILM: Miss Kiet's Children

Thursday 21st of December 2017


Easily the best Dutch film of the year.
Trouw (The Netherlands)

The international press calls the award-winning Dutch documentary Miss Kiet's Children: 'a jewel', 'subtle but powerful' and 'tender and shrewdly observed'. Focusing on a singular Dutch schoolteacher and her class of refugee children, this powerful, impeccably observed film offers a timely and revelatory glimpse into the young refugee experience, rife with great moments of humor, hope, and compassion.

The film, by Dutch filmmakers Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster, won a Gouden Kalf (Golden Calf) for the best documentary at the Nederlands Film Festival. Petra and Peter will join the 7 pm screenings on Wednesday, Dec. 13 ( premiere) and Friday, Dec. 15 and do a Q&A afterward.

A master class in nonfiction filmmaking. Truly outstanding.
A lovely, upbeat, even life-affirming film.

The Hollywood Reporter

In the Dutch countryside, a gaggle of refugee children, mostly from Syria, are students in Miss Kiet’s classroom. Smart, compassionate, keenly aware of the problems they’ve already lived through – she teaches them to speak Dutch, to talk the talk -- but more importantly, to walk the walk. Trust, patience, compassion, and humor are part of the lesson plan. For a refugee child anywhere in the world, Miss Kiet’s class must be the closest thing to dying and going to heaven. The movie is a revelation to anyone who reads the headlines but has no idea how delightful, confounding, and thoroughly surprising “refugees” can be.

All about hope and what can be achieved by one good woman.
