Early high point by documentary filmmaker Van der Keuken is a Dutch example of cinéma vérité: a direct, spontaneous form of looking for the truth with a handy camera and available light. With blackened images, a tracing camera and scanning shots, Van der Keuken puts the spectator in the position of blind children: on the street with a white stick and at school during classes. In 2007 admitted to the "Canon van de Nederlandse Film".
