Mirror of Holland 1950

  • Bert Haanstra

  • Documentary
In 1950 Haanstra made Mirror of Holland, combining his talent as a filmmaker with his eye as a painter. Holding the camera upside down, he filmed images of Holland reflected in water. The effect is strange and delightful. It astonished critics and the public alike. Mirror of Holland was Haanstra’s first success abroad. It was shown at the Cannes film festival, and won a Golden Palm.
