Buladó - Expat Cinema Rotterdam
Eché Janga
Miss seeing international films because you can’t yet keep up with the Dutch subtitles? Want to meet fellow expats and new Dutch folks. Love cinema. Then this is the event for you! Curated international films with English subtitles.

Buladó tells the magical-realistic and heartwarming story of a small family in the countryside of Curaçao. As the different mentalities of rational father Ouira and spiritual grandfather Weljo start to clash, eleven-year-old Kenza is determined to find her own path into adult life.

Kenza (11) lives in a house on a salvage yard together with her father Ouira, her grandfather Weljo and stray dog Tjenko. The two men in her life are opposites: her father is a police officer and a rational man, while her grandfather favours the spiritual world connected to the history of the islands. Kenza hovers in-between these two worlds until the sadness about the loss of loved ones, opens her eyes and she becomes receptive to the mystical, comforting traditions of her grandfather.

The movie won a ‘Gouden Kalf’ during the Dutch Film Festival 2020.
