Characters in Real Life

TuncTop is an Amsterdam-based multi-disciplinary and mix-media artist who has been working on cultural diversity in neighborhoods all around the world. You are invited to a screening evening at Framer Framed on the 6th of October where we will watch together: Mokum Verhalen (2020), Prasann (2019) and Molenwijk Originals (2019) made by TuncTop.

Mokum Verhalen (3′) is a series of short cartoon documentaries showing real life stories of a diverse Amsterdam – people from all walks of life, all ages, ethnicities and economic backgrounds. At Framer Framed’s viewing, the first episode of the series will premier.

Prasann (10′) is a poetic documentary shot in India about 9-year-old Prasann, who has lived an ordinary life in a fishing village, dreaming of his future as he pursues his passion.

Molenwijk Originals (42′) is TuncTop’s longest official documentary and produced during his artist residency at Werkplaats Molenwijk – Framer Framed. TuncTop met many locals in Molenwijk – food vendors, kids, youngsters, old ladies, Afghani, Syrian, Ugandan newcomers – each character with a very special persona and an interesting story to tell. TuncTop had only one question for his new neighbors: What’s gonna happen in 2050?

The screening is reservation only due to Covid-19 regulations.
