IDFA 2022 opens with the world premiere of All You See by Niki Padidar (pictured above). Contemplating questions of what it means to belong, who gets excluded, and how outsider status is continually reaffirmed, Padidar’s multi-layered feature powerfully foregrounds the sensation of being looked at. Honest, painful, and even humorous encounters with three other immigrants to the Netherlands are stylistically interwoven between Padidar’s own personal history, opening up a vulnerable space of articulation with global resonance. A confessional collage with no simple outs, All You See turns the spotlight on all of us, while simultaneously asking: who is “us”?
Stylistically bold and timeless - Business Doc Europe
De openingsfilm van IDFA, All You See, is een belangrijke en visueel krachtige documentaire die iedereen die weleens denkt dat hij ‘gewoon maar een vraag’ stelt, zou moeten zien. - De Filmkrant
