Still Gevangen op Java

Prisoner of Java

Status: Completed
Java, 1941. Journalist and writer Willem Walraven (Gerard Thoolen) is imprisoned in Bandung. Thanks to his wilful and non-conformist behaviour he has brought misfortune on himself. Accused of Nazi sympathies, he has been sentenced to solitary confinement. It isn’t even possible for him to write, the only activity that gives his life any purpose. They have taken away his typewriter, the piano of his soul. From his cell, Willem Walraven looks back on his life.
