(Dutch) Soerabaja Surabaya, a Tropical Revolution in the Fall of 1945; film by Peter Hoogendijk; YouTube Trailer – An extremely violent revolution, followed by a fierce and bloody battle in the city of Surabaya, Java, right after WWII. This post colonial episode is entirely forgotten in the Western World, while it is proudly celebrated annually in Indonesia on Heroes Day. But while Indonesia honors its Pemuda-veterans, the events have severely traumatized thousands of (Indo) Dutch victims of the revolution. And for the British-Indian brigade that came in to help, Surabaya 1945 became a horrifying disaster. A Dutch woman finds out what shocking events happened right around her, 60 years ago, when she had to hide under a table, a 17 year old girl yet. She is confronted with three points of view: the Indonesian heroes, the Indo-Dutch victims, and the sons of the British general who got killed during a terrifying scene by an outrageous mob. The views of the persons involved in this tropical drama touch upon universal themes. www.soerabajasurabaya.n
