Johan van der Keuken (1938-2001) was one of the most celebrated Dutch filmmakers and photographers in the country’s cultural history.


For cinephiles the world over, van der Keuken is famous for his political clarity and his singular eye as a filmmaker and cameraman: few artists can claim to have recorded so many rich images from all corners of the world as this great non-fiction artist. Three of van der Keuken’s masterpieces – the musical history Brass Unbound (1993), his final work The Long Holiday, and his most famous and celebrated film, the four-hour Amsterdam Global Village (1996) – come to worldwide from September 5, 2022.
