We’ve been working extensively the last few months on a controversial documentary that will shed new light on one of the most horrible incidents (and mysterious cover-ups) in Dutch WWII history: ‘The Doom of the Van Imhoff’ (‘De Ondergang van de Van Imhoff’).
In 1942, a ship holding German civilian prisoners is sunk near Sumatra, present-day Indonesia. The Dutch crew saves itself, but leaves the 477 Germans to drown. 65 people survive and take control of the Dutch East Indies island Nias.
For the many historical reconstruction scenes, directors Kees Schaap and Foeke de Koe from Episode One approached us to create a fully digital Van Imhoff ship.
BNNVARA aired the 3-part documentary in December on network NPO 2 at 20:15.
