One of the biggest Dutch newspapers, Het Parool, just published another interview with filmmaker Fadi Hindash and reporter Liza van Lonkhuyzen. If you read Dutch, do have a look!
Sarah Goodyear from CityLab, a news source dedicated to the people who are creating the cities of the future, just published a splendid interview with Fadi, the director of Mama Agatha about cycling, migration and hope.
“Normally, most stories about immigration tend to focus on the suffering, which I believe is fair since that is a reality, but my intention was to make a film about someone who was able to turn their suffering and loss into something positive. I believe hope is very important because without it, what is the point of living, whether you are a migrant or not.”
Just in time for our upcoming screening at Cambridge Film Festival and Aesthetica Short Film Festival in the UK, the cyxling industry daily info portal BikeBiz.com is featuring Mama Agatha!

The team of Mama Agatha would like to thank Annie van Cleve for conducting the interview with Fadi, and her colleague at Mobycon Angela van der Kloof, who has been a tireless supporter of Mama Agatha from the start. Mama Agatha would not be possible without Angela’s help and expertise – in fact, Angela is a pioneer of cycling courses for immigrant women, who started this work 20 years ago and also trained Mama Agatha herself.
