Now Something is Slowly ChangingMenna Laura Meijer, Mint film office
Self-development. Inner growth. It seems like the holy grail of our time. The contemporary search for meaning and personal growth is widespread, the offered solutions vary. A cinematic - often hilarious - observation of this search, along with a registration of workshops and training courses that want to answer ubiquitous questions.
A presentation about happiness for primary school students, a course 'dealing with tension and aggression' and a vlogger who tries to calm down stressed followers with soft, relaxing sounds. But also quite a few therapy sessions with animals, such as a pig massages or leadership training with horses. Fatherhood courses. Mindfulness for children. The camera registers, but keeps its distance, just outside of the group. As a clinical observation of our human quest, this varied documentary lets the viewer make up his own mind about what all this means. Now Something is Slowly Changing won the prize for best Dutch documentary at the prestigious documentary festival IDFA
