Children's lives can be very stressful sometimes. This is evidenced by the hundreds of conversations and phone conversations De Kindertelefoon has every day with children looking for a listening ear.
Literally everything is reviewed. There are calls about divorce and kicking. About moving on and falling in love. About singing and kissing. About pizza and spring rolls and cats and guinea pigs. In “KRO-NCRV ZappDoc: LISTEN”, these phone conversations come together in one exciting story.
“LISTEN” airs during Anti-Bullying Week. NPO Zapp is once again taking action against bullying this year with “Stip it: Bullying Together Against Nobody”. Anyone in the Netherlands can show they are against bullying by putting four dots on their hand and sharing them via social media with #stipit and npozapp. Are you being bullied? Then you can contact De Kindertelefoon anonymously.
In addition to the television broadcast, the “LISTEN” program is included in De Kindertelefoon lessons for primary and secondary schools. The film will also be shown during the De Kindertelefoon encounters program for refugee children.
“LISTEN” is directed by Astrid Bussink and produced by Een van de boys in collaboration with KRO-NCRV with support from the NPO Fund and CoBO. Previously, “LISTEN” won the Special Jury Prize for Documentary Films for Young People at the IDFA International Documentary Film Festival.
“ZappDoc: LISTEN”, Sunday, January 28 at 7:20pm during KRO-NCRV Anti-Bullying Week on NPO 3.
