Just Peace Movie Night – Behind the Numbers

26 June @ 18:00 21:00


In honour of International Pride Day, Just Peace in collaboration with Human Rights in the Picture and Hivos will be hosting a Just Peace Movie Night! We will be screening the documentary, “Behind the Numbers.”

This film, created by Human Rights in the Picture made with director Andy Funnell for Hivos, follows an intersex person from Zimbabwe, Ronie, a lesbian couple from Bangkok, Anticha and Build, and a trans person from the Netherlands, Laura. All experience daily obstacles and challenges in the heteronormative society in which they live.


The film was made for the Free to be Me program of Hivos, which works in 14 countries around the world to better the socioeconomic position of LGBTIQ+ persons. The program supports the communities to advocate for fair laws and regulations and work to influence public opinion.


The film was made in a climate-friendly way by using local film teams in Zimbabwe, Thailand and the Netherlands while also paying attention to the representation of queer creators in the teams. This innovative way of making has led to a layering in the film that leads to great accessibility to the stories in the different countries of the Free to be Me program.

The film sheds light on and hopes to raise awareness for the socioeconomic exclusion of LGBTIQ+ persons. In the Netherlands tolerance and acceptance of LGBTIQ+ rights is decreasing, as indicated by the countries drop on the Rainbow Map and Index. For these reason, we find the need to discuss the issue of socioeconomic inclusion of LGBTIQ+ persons more important than ever.

Just Peace Movie Nights are film screenings and discussions on important and current issues in the world of peace and justice.

Attendees are welcome to buy drinks from the bar throughout the event.
