Title World Premiere: If only night wouldn't fall Degree of recognition International Media type Other Duration/Length/Size 84 minutes Country/Territory Netherlands Date 16/06/2023 Description In three interwoven stories - in The Netherlands, Norway and the USA, we observe different stages of prevention: from children at a primary school that get an ‘early intervention’ to keep away anxiety disorders at a later age, to a young man that tries to avoid a new psychosis. A next level is reached in Florida where a city without friction is built in order make all residents happy. As in a disquieting study, the protagonists in this film are being measured and questioned all of the time, for their
own benefit. But could it be possible that something gets lost in this quest for our optimal selves?
Martien Kas, project coordinator of the PRISM project contributed to the Dutch component of the film that has now been selected for the international competition at the Sheffiled DocFest. The film has been made by Marc Schmidt.
