Marinier 37020

Marinier 37020

2018

Short film / documentary about my grandfather who served in Indonesia during the decolonization war. He was 20 years old and was chosen to be a marine. Marine 37020. During those two years, he wrote letters to his parents.
But when he returned to the Netherlands, he refused to talk about what has happend.

There are two stories about this periode from Dutch persepective.
One the government tells us and the story of the people who went to serve.

This short movie compares the stories visually. The images which are shown come from the archive of the ministry of defence and my grandmothers. My grandfather took pictures in Indonesia to send to his parents. While watching the movie, you hear me reading a letter to my grandfather. I ask him questions we all do not know the awnser to. Unfortunatly he can't awnser me anymore because he past away in 2014.
