A Lost Film about Hoorn and H.

The film tries to reconstruct a destroyed research on the city of Hoorn and its colonial past. It is a film about a double loss. The first loss is a loss of meaning, which obviously cannot be provided by archival images, which the original film research used. The second loss is a material loss of the original film research itself, which made the reconstruction necessary. Somewhere in between the archival images, which wouldn’t tell enough and the original research images, which have been lost, an interstitious history may be reconstructed.
