THE BASTARD | The Netherlands/Ethiopia | 2018 | 84 Min
Dir: Floris-Jan van Luyn
Two separate stories of an adult child and an elderly father are inextricably intertwined. Together they tall a harrowing tale about fate and DNA and about how the lack of a father influenced these lives. Ethiopian Daniel Hoek has not doubt in his mind that if his Dutch father had not abandoned him he would never have turned to crime. His Dutch father, Joop Hoek, has no doubt in his mind that if his Dutch-Indonesian father had not abandoned him he would have grown up to be a different person.
