Indo's Silence (Indisch Zwijgen) is a short documentary, directed by Sven Peetoom and Juliette Dominicus. In te film, three artists try to break the generational silence in their families about their colonial past in the Dutch East Indies.
Three third-generation Dutch-Indonesian artists delve into their own family history in an attempt to break the generational “Indo's silence.” How does the silenced past influence their present lives? How can they, as a third generation, express what it means to be Indo? The documentary is a starting point for a conversation about the past of the Netherlands that until now has often remained underexposed.
The film is available and screened most of the time with English subtitles. However, our workshops and talks are often in Dutch. If you want to see the film as a non Dutch speaker, let us know by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org
