The Columnist

Director: Ivo van Aart Run Time: 86 min. Language: Dutch

VIRTUAL

Successful columnist Femke (Katja Herbers) is flooded every day by anonymous harassments and death threats on social media. She becomes addicted to the vicious messages, and finds herself continuously clicking back to the hateful comments before she goes to sleep. Not only is this affecting her motivation to write new articles, but she also needs to finish writing the novel she promised to deliver her publisher. One day, she snaps…. the act of violence and revenge eases and inspires her – she writes like never before.

“The Columnist is as seductive and as playful as it is discomfiting.” ~ Eye for Film
