16″ – Dutch
Artikel 240 (Article 240) is a short documentary film I edited in my third year at the Netherlands Film Academy. There were no restrictions regarding the subject, but the film had to be between 12 and 17 minutes long. The director Niels Beth wanted to open a discussion using an interview driven film.
The public opinion is not especially kind when the conversation is about pedophelia. There is a big difference between someone who has pedophelic feelings and someone who acts on them and there are a lot of ‘ethically healthy’ pedophiles who feel attracted to children but do not act on it, because they know this is illegal and harmful to the children. In Artikel 240 we ask the question if virtually animated porn could be a solution to the people who are stuck in their own sexual identity.
