My Take on Murphy's Law
By: Alexia Radu
WINTER SPORTS EDITION
Bad luck was again a given from the beginning of the year, as expected, but let me focus solely on two particular days to which I can easily add a nice dramatic touch for extra effect. It’s an imperative to firstly construct the backstory: family skiing trip minus half of the family because of my dad breaking his tendon exactly 2 days before it. I’m going to press fast forward to the unfolding of events here and spare you of dull details such as a 6 hours ride and a paralyzing coldness.
Day 1: Après-skis can be overrated; just hear me out. I’m starting to get the discomforting feeling one gets when they know someone is watching them: ... do you want to continue reading? Click here!
Calendar of February
OFF-SCREEN'S GOT TALENT
27.02.20 - 01.03.20

Noa’s confessional: a place where you can spill the tea and tell all your sins.
In this sacrament, Noa can forgive sins in Off-Screen’s name. With all the crazy stuff happening within Off-Screen’s walls, it was about time for us to have a safe place to tell your most embarrassing, weird, unusual and striking stories for them to be heard by all of us. So from now on, when something special happens to you, you have something on your mind or there’s something else that you really want to share with the rest of Off-Screen, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, tell me in person or reveal it to me in a dream.
I decided that, just like in a real confessional, everything should be and stay anonymous. And remember, this is a safe place where everyone can come to terms with his/her sins, where judgement is a word that doesn’t belong in our vocabulary, and where we can all enjoy your embarrassing stories.

Although Het Ketelhuis is a theatre dedicated to Dutch film, in the month February they screen a lot of international films that are worth watching: 'The Whistlers' is a Romanian film noir about an undercover cop infiltrating the mafia. If you like this kind of movie, consider watching 'Il Testimone Invisible', a Spanish Hitchcock-esque whodunnit. Also, there are two French titles screening now: 'Hors Normes', a film by the same makers as the very popular Intouchables, and 'Au nom de la terre', a fim by debuting director Edouard Bergeon. Last but not least... Click here!
This March, ComedyTrain plays host to two multi-award winning comedians for one great night of jokes and laughs.
