Rotterdam

Took a quick trip a couple of weeks ago to go to the Rotterdam International Film Festival. Saw a very thought provoking film called AFR, which was about Ander Fogh Rasmussan, the Prime Minister of Denmark. It basically spliced together a whole lot of interviews by prominent Danish politicians so that it looked as though the Prime Minister had a gay lover, who he had killed in order to protect his political career. It was meant to be about freedom of speech (after the Muslim Cartoon crisis in denmark) and about how the media manipulate source material to give their tilt to the truth. The director came out afterwards and spoke. It was an all round top day out of the Hague... even if Rotterdam is a little forgettable (apologies to Rotterfolk!).

Here are some photos of the dam of Rotters:
