Even after touring the world for two years, it’s always a joy to have the film shown back home in Amsterdam. In just a few days, there will be a very special occasion: Azart – The Ship of Fools is an independent maritime theater group with a history spanning 28 years, which has presented their comic theater in 20 countries. For the last two years, Azart has been moored at NDSM wharf in Amsterdam and in August this year, the ship sets sail on a one-way trip to the Southern Hemisphere along a dozen cities in South America, West and South Africa, India and beyond. Before leaving Amsterdam, Azart will say farewell with a spectacular art festival from 13 to 23 July. And a screening of Mama Agatha on the deck of the ship will be part of the experience on July 18, as the opening film to a theater play. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to get the latest info and screening times!
