Thrilling and revealing film about the life and work of cineaste Louis van Gasteren by Rudolf van den Berg, Jeroen Koolbergen and Interakt.

During the production of this documentary about the life and work of cineaste Louis van Gasteren, Rudolf van den Berg finds out why exactly he was trusted by Van Gasteren to make this film. The film maker Louis van Gasteren had once told Rudolf van den Berg that he would be the sole person Van Gasteren would entrust with his massive film-archive. Flattered, but not without a certain scepticism, Van den Berg noted his offer, until a few years back he saw a sudden opportunity to make an epic documentary about the cultural and social storm that flew over the Netherlands in the past sixty years.
