The festival ends with the very intriguing documentary “A Strange Love Affair”. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, is social media turning us into narcissists? Admiration for her sister Rowan’s self-conﬁdence leads ﬁlmmaker Ester Gould on a personal exploration of our narcissistic culture, with disconcerting results. A remarkable journey past four life stages and the fundamental need to be seen. This award winning documentary was called the best Dutch Film on IDFA and was nominated for the The Dutch Gouden Kalf Award.
