Naval Cadets by Walter Stokman
Navy Mids

Navy Mids

The film follows future naval officers at the Royal Netherlands Naval College during their first military initiation on the island of Texel, and on their first trip on a naval vessel in the Baltic Sea, where they learn the ropes on board as a lower class seaman. These youngsters choose a life that will not be easy. What does this tell us about them, and furthermore about the time we are living in?
