September 4, 1944: the liberation of Antwerp. Among the citizens, there’s joy and relief, but also sadness about what’s lost. These mixed feelings are translated in the beautiful exhibition Vreugde & Verdriet.
We had the honor to speak to some of the witnesses and bring their moving memories on screen. Edited together with unique archive material, we created a movie which could be perfectly integrated in the exhibition.
Due to its great success the exhibition became a traveling expo that is still running. To give you an idea of what the full movie is all about, we selected a couple of fragments and stills. Even in a few seconds the stories of three survivors give an intimate and personal view on history.
