Language: Dutch, subtitles: English
Historian and tv presenter Hans Goedkoop, himself from Indonesian descent, made this cinematic documentary about the years of history between the East Indies and the Netherlands. Many aspects of the Indonesian influences on the entire Dutch society are discussed: The Indo’s, the Moluccans, but also the veterans and the Totoks, the plantations and the boarding houses.
After the movie there will be a Q&A with the film director Reda van der Putten in the screening room.
"In his screenplay, Goedkoop has succeeded in presenting a complete picture of 350 years of history.” Dutch review in NRC
"You get a wealth of information and can marvel at the collected historical footage. And this in a tone that is sometimes pleasant in today's heated debate about colonialism.” Dutch review in Het Parool
