Great Success for Dutch doc Tikotin

29 October 2014

The Dutch documentary "Tikotin - a life devoted to Japanese Art", directed by Santje Kramer and produced by Sarphati Media, has recently won the "Hearts, Minds and Souls" Grand Prize at the Rhode Island International Film Festival 2014. The film was selected for 13 international film festivals so far. In October alone it has screened at 5 festivals in 4 countries.

"Tikotin - a life devoted to Japanese Art" tells the amazing and tragic life story of a German Jew who became a dealer in Japanese Art, fought in the German Kaiser's Army, went into hiding in Holland, founded a Japanese Art museum in Haifa and ended up on a Swiss mountain.
The film is an intimate portrait of a charismatic, strong, but also headstrong man for whom his family always came second - after the Japanese art.
