God threw him another lifeline, Pieter Cramerus tells Juliet Wills during an interview that took place in 2005. Cramerus and Jo Muller find themselves completely disoriented, dehydrated, almost naked, without any shoes, with heavy sunburn in the harsh outback on the coast of Western Australia and suddenly they find water, drinkable water and meet an Aboriginal, who leads them to safety, back in March 1942. In the Vimeo album (https://vimeo.com/album/1894331) WWll Spitfire pilot Pieter Cramerus tells about his adventures during WWll, flying a Spitfire fighter plane over Western Europe. He talks about his youth and going back to the Dutch Indies were he was born. The looming war in the Dutch Indies. Bombing the Japanese invasion fleet in Borneo. His escape out of the hands of the Japanese Army. His evacuation to Australia. The crash landing with famous KLM captain Ivan Smirnoff on a deserted beach in Western Australia after being shot down by Japanese Zero's. And fighting the Germans from the air in WWll's various European Battles. He is shocked by the casualties the Dutch 322 squadron is suffering when they change from interception to armed reconnaissance, a task the Spitfire was not designed for. God threw him many lifelines during that period. This is an oral history project in conjunction with the dedicated Cramerus pages strijdbewijs.nl/cramerus.htm published by Pieter Jutte. Video's in English. Video produced and directed by Tom Poederbach (Vimeo)+ More details
Housing is a Human Right is an ongoing multi-platform documentary portrait of the struggle for home.

Composed of stories in sound and photographs, in the tradition of oral history, along with testimonies and memories – woven and remixed – this collection of viscerally honest, first-person narratives aims to illuminate the complex fabric of community and the human right to a place to call home.

Remembering Rosewood is a short video (25 min) providing basic background about the 1923 race riot which destroyed this north Florida town. The video is formatted and organized to supplement the Remembering Rosewood bus tours. The content centers on providing a historical perspective on the development of Rosewood as a community, and therefore is less concerned with the actual riot itself. Historical and anthropological research combines with computer mapping and 3D modeling to bring this story to life in a new way. This aspect of the video corresponds with my PhD on the topic. You can learn more about this by visiting The Virtual Rosewood Research Site at www.virtualrosewood.com.+ More details
