We’ve teamed up with the most romantic movie theater of Amsterdam, Filmtheater de Uitkijk. Aside from their assorted agenda, the entirely student-run cinema curates bimonthly ‘specials’; series of movies, linked through a specific theme. And in addition, they screen a classic picture every month! Subbacultcha members can attend selected screenings of the specials and classics for free.

This month’s special is Enfants Terribles. This curated selection of films wants to explore films a series of films involving controversial filmmakers and/or films that Uitkijk feels still provide some food for thought.

The Act of Killing by Joshua Oppenheimer is a harrowing documentary that discusses atrocities with unlikely lightness. Called a masterpiece by many, this film has also been strongly criticised. On the one hand, the film has been criticised by the Indonesian government, which believes the film paints a distorted picture of the country, and on the other, it has been criticised for the way mass murderers are given a stage.

Subbacultcha members can attend the screening of The Act Of Killing for free. There are limited spots available. One can make a reservation by sending an e-mail to, citing ‘The Act Of Killing’ in the mail. Please show your membership card at the box office.
