Bridge To Liberation – PortraitsPortrait films
Since 2013, we have been collaborating annually with the Bridge to Liberation Foundation and JMT on commemorating the Battle of Arnhem and Operation Market Garden. We research the characters, craft the narrative, and, together with Alvin Williams from JMT, lay the foundation for the show. The storywriting process always involves the collaboration of Nazmiye Oral. And then comes the most exciting part – the filming itself. Each year, it depends on the story we are creating. Sometimes, the best way to tell the stories is through the voices of those who were there – people with a connection to the past, the environment, or even individuals from today who can relate to the situation.
