With the Internationale Youth Film Festival Rotterdam the initiators Willma Kun (House of Craziness - Huis Der Zotheid) and Erik Van Loon (Foundation Aquarius - Stichting Aquarius) want to show children in Rotterdam how children in others countries life, what kind of religions and habits they have, food they eat and the problems they have to overwin.
