From 1940, around 25,000 Dutch people served in the Waffen-SS. In spite of their large number, they did not make much public disclosure after the war. Eight Dutch former SS men tell their story in this documentary. Never before have former SS men talked so openly about their motives, their (wrong) acts, their experiences on the (Eastern) front and their struggle with the memories of the past.
How can we tell stories from now on? Shot amidst the quarantine and political turmoil in Latin America's biggest city, edited with intense research, this film interviews writers, philosophers and political scientists who brought up pertinent and urgent reflections on possible scenarios in a post-pandemic world. "Stories from Afterwards" traces a narrative line that starts from the principles of scientific thought, from works that predicted (or not) the future, from Arthur C. Clarke to Margaret Atwood, up to the challenges of creating stories in a world in constant transformation, with visible and invisible enemies, between denialist policies from Bolsonaro's government and disruptive technologies.

In the realm of contemporary music, Adam “Nergal” Darski surely needs no further introduction. Yet the guitarist and singer has even made inroads into general pop culture and shaped social discourse, all the while not moving away an iota from the underground ethos his ongoing career is based on. Rising from his humble beginnings in Cold-war Poland to global fame with his band Behemoth, striving for musical excellence throughout the ignominies of life-threatening illness and dubious legal battles, staying deeply spiritual and focused during even the most casual appearances in mundane limelight, it is safe to say the 1977-born has many faces, the sum of which defies categorization. Satanist or dexterous money spinner? Academically certified historian or shallow media figure? Inspired and inspiring spokesperson of a generation or mere agent provocateur? Make your guesses...
A picture lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes of the sensitive observer. It dies by the same token...how often it must be impaired by the eyes of the unfeeling and the cruelty of the impotent.
