Andere Tijden Special: De Andere Jaren Vijftig
SC 8.4/10 

Date: 27.09.2008
Country: Netherlands
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl, swimming
Description: Almost an hour of color film about the 1950s, a period that we only knew in black and white until now. Flower parades, Juliana and Bernhard with Maroons, lunch boxes on the luggage carrier, smoking children and the festive entrance of the Philips sun: these are just a few of the color fragments that change our view of the 1950s forever. The broadcast 'The other fifties' gives a unique picture of a decade that was boring, austere and basic, but actually not too bad in color.

Year: 2009
Country: USA
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl
Description: A powerful feature documentary about child sexploitation, an epidemic happening in every country around the world. Filmed over a four year period, REDLIGHT focuses on the personal stories of young Cambodian victims and two remarkable advocates for change: grass-roots activist Somaly Mam and politician Mu Sochua. Both have since been nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. The filmmakers Guy Jacobson and Adi Ezroni won the prestigious Global Hero Award for their work in Cambodia. Using gritty footage smuggled out of brothels and harrowing testimonials, REDLIGHT follows the plight of several current and former child sex slaves. Some are trying to regain entry into Cambodian society to find some semblance of normality after their horrific experiences. Other stories highlight the plight of victims who are attempting to bring the perpetrators to justice. Their torturous yet ultimately heroic battles to find witnesses and take brothel owners to court are dramatically brought to life in this topical and moving feature documentary.

Artek: Het ideale vakantiekamp
SC 6.8/10 

Year: 2002
Country: Netherlands
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl, summer camp, swimming
Description: Since its foundation in 1925, the exclusive Ukrainian youth camp Artek only accepted the best Pioneers (Soviet boy scouts). In 1991, the Soviet Union disintegrated, but on the face of it much has remained the same in Artek: the youngsters still come from former Soviet republics like Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Georgia, and are still addressed moralistically by the leadership. Every child still gets a scarf, too, but now it is blue instead of red. But the youngsters have definitely changed. The meanwhile privatised Artek no longer exclusively takes in excelling pupils, but also orphans. Instead of massive morning exercises, the children now receive driving lessons and dental care. And the ever-smiling children in the infectious archive footage are offset by the interviews with wavering present-day kids, who had expected more from the camp.
