This film is not appropriate for children who still believe in Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet.
This is a fine cut. Fine tuning of colour correction, sound-edit and timing are not yet done.
Every year the people of the Netherlands celebrate Sinterklaas.
An important part of the festivities is the figure of Zwarte Piet or Black Pete.
In 2014 a Dutch court ruled that the figure of Black Piet is a racial stereotype.
In 2015 the UN stated that even a ‘deeply rooted cultural tradition
does not justify discriminatory practices and stereotypes’
This film explores a changing Dutch tradition.
