Cogent, complex, and classically composed, the documentaries of Johan van der Keuken reveal his lifelong curiosity about the ever-changing world and its inhabitants. His films stretch the boundaries of both documentary and narrative fiction, resulting in a uniquely personal style that is as daring as it is compassionate. Volume 3 highlights work from the filmmaker's mid-career, including Diary, The White Castle, Bert Schierbeek/The Door, Vietnam Opera, Paris a l'Aube, Blind Child, Beppie, Herman Slobbe/Blind Child 2, Big Ben: Ben Webster in Europe, The Spirit of the Time, The Cat, The New Ice Age, Four Walls, Velocity 40-70, The Wall, and Springtime: Three Portraits.
