Young people are confronted with mindless violence relatively frequently, so regrettably this continues to be a relevant theme for the youth of today. Nineteen-year-old director Jesse Bleekemolen has now made a new Dutch film called Fataal (Fatal) about the disastrous consequences of such violence. With the film Jesse wants to increase attention for mindless violence.
“More than 13,000 school pupils went to the film Fataal with their school.”
Secondary school pupils can see the film at a reduced price as part of the Fataal School Tour in combination with a Q&A and a teaching module. This is being arranged in cooperation with cinemas around the Netherlands, including the Pathé, Vue and KinePolis cinema chains. The teaching module is based on the film and has been developed together with the MOED Landelijke Stichting Tegen Zinloos Geweld (COURAGE National Foundation Against Mindless Violence) and the mindless violence ladybird logo. Teachers use the module to discuss the subject of mindless violence with pupils after watching the gripping film.
