Film: Frank and Eva
(52 min, video, 1999, Dutch spoken) Directors: Ali Haselhoef & Inge Willems. Documentary, with all the qualities of a motion picture. This film debut is an ode to the parents of director Ali Haselhoef. Mother Eva is a prostitute, stepfather Frank one of the first Surinam men in Groningen (1960). He is a drugs dealer, womanizer, father of many extramarital children: in short, he fits every cliché. Together, they gave Ali a special youth. How are they doing now?
