Description

Remarkable, riveting and profoundly moving are just some of the descriptions that best describe this drama based on the real life story of Hans Knoop, former editor of a Dutch news magazine. In the mid-70’s, Knoop courageously pursued the investigation of mega-millionaire Pieter Menten, who he suspected was a war criminal. Stellar performances and a taut script make this drama a powerful film about the pursuit of justice and one man’s dogged persistence for the truth.

Guest Speaker: Journalist Hans Knoop

Underwritten by Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; Susan & Moses Libitzky; Lili & David Naveh.
