I met Marjoleine Boonstra during the time she had her exhibition in the FOTOKABINETTEN series of exhibitions at the Gemeentemuseum and discovered that she not only is a gifted photographer but she also makes intrigueing documentaries. Many of these have been shown on the IDFA documentary festival and the one i specially found beautiful but in the meantime an eye opener was the “Britanya” documentary . The subject…. Fugitives from Iran who are trying to reach Great Britain.

But there is one that i find the very best of all …..it is the documentary on MARK ROTHKO

“THE SILENCE OF MARK ROTHKO” and it can be found here:

There are not that many publications, but there is one which is available at www.ftn-books.com. A beautiful small publication designed by Willem van Zoetendaal and one from the series on Dutch photographers who exhibited in the Fotokabinetten series.
