Overview of 35 years of film produc­tion in the Netherlands.
Docu­men­tary about Dutch film produc­tion between 1958 — the founding of the Film Academy — and 1993 which tries to answer two very simple ques­tions: Who wants to film what in Holland and why?’ and Why do so many film people seek solace abroad?’ The answers to the ques­tions, which were posed to many people in the film world, left the makers Robbe de Hert and Willem Thijssen with thirty hours of film mate­rial and the ques­tion how to condense the many fasci­nating and open-hearted stories to a film of 120 minutes.
