Film Cinema Olanda in the collection of Dutch museums
The movie Cinema Olanda, part of the Dutch entry for the current Venice Biennale, will be included in the collection of the Museum Arnhem and the Central Museum in Utrecht.
The movie for the international art exhibition was created by Wendelien van Oldenborgh and makes in Venice to be part of the same presentation of this artist and her colleague Lucy Cotter.
The film is shot in Rotterdam and shows very different people who all tell about an unknown aspect of Dutch history, what a different image of our country is obtained than that of an open, tolerant and modern nation. The production yielded very different reviews.
Birgit Donker, director of the responsible Mondriaan Fund, is happy that the film for the Netherlands is preserved: “It is great that this work is included in the Collection of the Netherlands. This will be accessible to as many people as possible.”
In the fall, Cinema Olanda for the first time at the show in Arnhem.
