Bert Haanstra - Sunday June 4
Factory Floor, 2nd Floor
Sunday June 4

In 1957, the Royal Leerdam Glass Works commissioned a black and white promotional film, called Speaking of Glass. On entering the factory Bert Haanstra noticed that a mechanical stacking machine was malfunctioned because of a broken bottle. Amused by its futile, robot-like movements, Haanstra agreed to make the film, on condition that he could make a separate short. The film gives an intriguing view of the process of glass blowing and the mechanical way in which glass objects are made. Glass was his greatest success to date, and even won an Oscar and Holland’s first Academy Award.


This film will be screened in combination with De Huisman. You buy one ticket for the two films.
