South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Title: For a Lost Soldier
Director: Roeland Kerbosch
Specs: Netherlands 1992 video 92min
A story of sexual awakening that finds fulfilment in a relationship that most filmmakers would be too shy to tackle.
Set during the liberation of the Netherlands by the Allied forces at the end of World War II, For a Lost Soldier is about the delicate relationship that develops between an alienated Dutch boy and a Canadian soldier.
The film must be unique in its understanding portrayal of an intergenerational relationship that is free of exploitation. Itís liberating in more ways than one.
For a Lost Soldier was one of the most popular screened at the first OIA Festival. It's still as liberating as it was 10 years agoÖ
