7th Heaven

Posted in Interview, News by barisazman on April 3, 2009



I was a guest on the radio at a program called ‘7th Heaven’ (De 7e Hemel) of the NMO (Nederlandse Moslim Omroep/ Dutch Muslim Broadcast) in Amsterdam, where I was one of four guests of emerging filmmakers. We were chosen because of our films that dealt with ‘social issues and topical matters’. Alongside me where filmmakers Beri Shalmashi, Bram Vergeer and Camiel Zwart. The host was Abdellah Dami, who asked us questions ranging from why we make films, to what our creative process is. All in all we talked for an hour, which seemed to fly by really fast.

You can listen to it here (program starts after the 02:42 min mark and is in Dutch).

    Praise to all who devote their lives to ’social issues and topical matters’. But is there anyone for ART out there? The BIG mysteries of life?

    Hey Eirik,

    I guess they were looking for artists that also fit the profile of ‘social issues and topical matters’, though I wouldn’t consider myself among filmmakers that pursue those themes per se. If they are also there inside the films, that’s good, but it’s not something that’s at the front.
