4th Crystal Film for Hetty Naaijkens

Dutch documentary Buitenkampers, the color of survival, directed by Hetty Naaijkens-Retel Helmrich, has reached the status of Crystal Film for more than 10.000 tickets sold since its theatrical release in The Netherlands. It is the thirteenth film to receive the Crystal Film Award since 2005.

For Naaijkens-Retel Helmrich it is the fourth time to receive a Crystal Film Award. She received the prize for producing the international award winning documentaries Shape of the Moon (2005) and Position Among the Stars (2011). In 2009 her directing debut Contract Pensions-Djangan Loepah! also reached the Crystal Film status.

Buitenkampers, the color of survival is produced by Holland Harbour Productions. World Sales are handled by Films Transit International.

Buitenkampers, the color of survival profiles the Indo-European children who, because of their mixed blood, lived outside the Japanese camps with their mothers but received no protection against the young Indonesian freedom fighters. The Indo-Europeans were regarded as collaborators with the white, Dutch colonialists and were subsequently regarded as easy targets for the young rebels during the War of Independence.

The Crystal Film is a prize for Dutch documentaries for more than 10.000 tickets sold. The prize is presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001 and is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. Fiction feature films that attract 100.000, 400.000 and 1.000.000 visitors receive the Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award.
