DOCfeed, Eindhoven’s documentary festival, has partnered with The Student Hotel to show some of the best documentaries. During the summer, every first Thursday of the month will be devoted to DOCfeed Documentary Nights.
Documentaries are an easy way to discover more about life and our planet. Most of these documentaries are only screened in Dutch without subtitles in other languages. But, at the DOCfeed Documentary Nights, English subtitles will be added.
On 2 May, DOCfeed will show their opening documentary, Schapenheld (Sheep Hero). This poignant documentary portrays the story of Stijn, a shepherd with a romantic world view. His idealism clashes with the harsh reality of having to be a modern entrepreneur. In this cinematic portrayal, we learn more about Stijn and his family in their quest to keep the tradition of sheep herding alive.
Shepherd Stijn will also be present at the Documentary Night to answer all your questions right after the screening. The screening starts at 19:45. Tickets only cost €5.
