Mirror of Holland

Spiegel van Holland

Directed by Bert Haanstra
Netherlands, 1950
Documentary, Short


In 1950, Haanstra made Mirror of Holland, combining his talent as a filmmaker with his eye as a painter. Holding the camera upside down, he filmed images of Holland reflected in water. The effect is strange and delightful. It astonished critics and the public alike.
