Herwinnen door werken

Summary

Herwinnen door werken, subtitled How we saw Netherlands - is a filmed colour portrait of Netherlands just after the Second World War. Immediately after the liberation of Deventer in April 1945, Alex Roosdorp and his wife Marie Roosdorp-van den Berg began filming of the devastation around them: wrecked towns, destroyed infrastructure and floodplains.

Roosdorp and his wife traveled hundreds of kilometers on their bikes to record everything; they made many recordings from the area around Deventer, but the film also includes footage of Arnhem, Scheveningen, Walcheren and the Wieringermeer polder.

The couple had an eye for the small ways in which everyday life continued in the liberated Netherlands.
