Diary of the forgetting (1989)

A short film by Barbara den Uyl

At an IDFA workshop led by Kees Hin, Barbara den Uyl made a self-portrait and a short film about the death of her father, former Dutch prime minister politician Joop den Uyl. What can a daughter add when her father’s death has already been examined at length in the press? She is silent, but the memory is not.
