Three women, each in their own way, plead for a worthy acknowledgement of the Dutch history of slavery.
What happens when you research your family history and what you find is a photo of the slave owner of your ancestors? What do you see and hear if you wander around Dutch museums and stumble upon centuries-old paintings with African child slaves? Which stories lay hidden behind historical house facades in The Hague? And most of all, what of the meaning of this all for a collective Dutch identity? For her newest documentary, director Ida Does filmed heritage expert Valika Smeulders, winti priest Marian Markelo and researcher Ellen-Rose Kambel. All explore colonial history in the Netherlands in their own way.
