{THE AND} Live in Amsterdam’s open air

This summer IDFA DocLab joins forces with one of Europe’s most exciting open air film festivals Pluk de Nacht to bring {THE AND} back to the big screen on Thursday August 13.

The And Live op Pluk

After its world premiere at IDFA DocLab 2014, World Press Photo Winner and Emmy nominated interactive documentary {THE AND} is coming back to Amsterdam for an interactive Live Cinema Event at Pluk de Nacht on Thursday August 13.

Together for three months and head over heels, or married for a quarter of a century and familiar with every wrinkle and idiosyncrasy. In both cases, love is hard work and in any relationship this work consists mainly of talking, asking questions and listening. In the interactive documentary {THE AND}, director Topaz Adizes has 30 couples – gay and straight, inexperienced teenagers and senior citizens who have been through all the highs and lows – ask one another 412 candid questions. All aspects of a relationship are investigated: the distribution of power, the biggest annoyances, greatest expectations and most beautiful memories. And of course sex.

On Thursday August 13, one of Europe’s most exciting open air film festivals Pluk de Nacht is inviting everyone, from young lovers, pining singles and parents with children to groups of friends and struggling siblings to experience and help create this unique live event. The ingredients are simple: couples, questions, an audience, and total honesty.

Pluk de Nacht runs from August 5 to 15 at Stenen Hoofd in Amsterdam. The bar and outside seating opens at 3PM with a short film starting as soon as it gets dark around 9PM. When the sun has set, the feature film or live event will start. Make sure to be there on time to get a good spot. Find out more details about the event here.

Want to be part of the interactive documentary?
{THE AND} is looking for romantic partners as well as non-couples to participate in the filming new episodes in Amsterdam on August 15th + 16th. A bit like an experimental couple therapy session, provides you the space to openly discuss the topics you’ve been curious to address. It only takes 1 hour of in-studio filming per couple or duo and there’s no preparation needed. Find out more here or email: Julia at julia@theskindeep.com for more information about participating or to sign up!
