Craft in Focus New York

film | De Huisman. On craftsmanship, insight, and authenticity.

Wendy van Wilgenburg - Sunday June 4
Factory Floor, 2nd Floor
Sunday June 4

A region of windmills. An active association of enthusiasts. Young, passionate craftsmen. This film documents the complete restoration of one of the Zaanse Schans’ finest windmills: ‘De Huisman’, famous for its mustard, which was produced here for many years. From ducklings in the spring, through the heat of summer to the winter snow, this documentary follows the construction process for over a year and a half. We look over the shoulders of the carpenters as they hammer and saw. Technical challenges and differences of opinion between the involved parties unfold. The whole process has resulted in a unique documentary that pays homage to traditional craftsmanship and offers a critical view on restoring cultural heritage.


Including Q&A with Wendy van Wilgenburg


Presented by The Zaanse Schans
