Time after time, superhero(in)es save the world. Strangely enough, they aren't always thanked for it. The dutiful bad guy and the people remain dissatisfied. Especially Batman keeps having a hard time.

Batman is special among superheroes because, other than a lot of money, he has no real superpowers. Depending on what the writers, cartoonists or film directors come up with, Batman seems to sometimes ruffle the feathers of the Gotham citizens. And he also regularly gets in his own way. In this wonderful Batman-program, our hero is figuratively lying on the sofa.

Fenno Werkman, famed collector of music and imagery, screens appropriate fragments from his enormous film archive. For Winternachten festival, he opens his treasure trove of Dark Knight-materials.

And heads up, there's something to be won: comic-strip artist Romano Molenaar will create a special Batman drawing for the festival, which goes to the winner of the Speed-Batman-Quiz at the end of the program.
