Color of Survival, The
A documentary about the everyday life of children during and after the Japanese occupation of the former Dutch East Indies.
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. Fifteen men and women describe in minute detail the impact on their lives, and those of their families.
