Inspired a local doctor’s diary, written after the battle of Arnhem, Blowing Through the Curtains reinterprets this tragic episode of the Second World War through a fascinating collage in which past and present become one.

Blowing Through the Curtains takes the viewer into a world where visual and audio archival documents are mixed with contemporary illustrations; a collage of heterogeneous elements that tells the story of the infamous Battle of Arnhem. While the story refers to current situations of violence, loss and displacement, it also articulates a message of hope through a poetic and intimate testimony.
