Indië verloren...

Play trailer

In-soo Radstake / NL, 2023 / 105 min.

Revealing documentary highlights how, for decades, almost until the present, the Dutch government continued to frame its war in Indonesia (1945 - 1949) as justified, shedding harsh light on the dubious roles of politicians, the media and historians in this process.

poster Indië Verloren... (Selling a Colonial War) (In-Soo Radstake, NL 2023)

Selling a Colonial War brutally reveals how the Dutch government and top diplomats controlled the narrative about their actions during the Indonesian struggle for independence using press offices, newspapers, cinema newsreels and propaganda films, ultimately - however - losing control of this history.

English and Dutch version

Indië verloren... is the Dutch subtitled version. Selling a Colonial War is the title of the 27-minute longer, English subtitled version, which can also be seen in Eye.
