New Netherland Now van start!

Beste steuners van ons project,

Mocht u de laatste maanden aan ons project hebben gedacht, dan was dat vast de gedachte: 'hoe zou gaan met die documentaire die ik destijds gesteund heb?'. Daarom is het met veel plezier dat we nu iets kunnen aankondigen dat neerkomt op een launch van de eerste videos.

Maar eerst een heldere uitleg over wat het project uiteindelijk geworden is. We hebben namelijk een aantal flinke knopen doorgehakt, en zijn blij met de keuzes die we gemaakt hebben. Het oorspronkelijke plan was een full-length documentaire over wat er vandaag de dag nog over is van Nieuw Nederland. 

Maar dat had een paar nadelen. Praktisch gezien kregen Heleen en ik kregen beide nieuwe uitdagingen aangeboden op ons werk, waardoor een full-length documentaire op z'n vroegst pas na jaren af zou zijn. Dit project is begonnen als een passion project, en dat moest het vooral blijven.

Ook realiseerden we ons dat een documentaire - voor delen in het Nederlands gedraaid - niet het publiek zou bereiken dat we eigenlijk zouden willen. We willen vooral Amerikanen bekend maken met onze gedeelde geschiedenis, en met een ambitie van Nederland 2 en docu-festivals zou dat eigenlijk niet lukken. Een release in de VS was in de huidige situatie misschien niet eens realistisch.

Bovendien is het 2015. Er groeit een nieuwe generatie op - waar wij keihard onderdeel van uit maken - die geen TV heeft, niet te bereiken is via reguliere kanalen, en media anders consumeert. Het is juist spannend om uit te proberen hoe een boeiend verhaal als dit op andere manieren te vertellen valt dan via een documentaire.

Daarom hebben we gekozen voor een Youtube-kanaal en een online presence waar we jaren op voort kunnen bouwen. Een concept dat we keer op keer zien lukken online. Elke dus zal er elke zoveel weken nieuwe content verschijnen, met elke keer een nieuwe invalshoek rondom hetzelfde verhaal:

Dat de Verenigde Staten een oorsprong hebben in de Nederlandse Republiek, waar andere waarden een rol speelden dan in het Engeland van de 17e eeuw: Relatieve vrijheid van denken, iets van je leven kunnen maken zonder dat je afkomst een doorslaggevende rol speelt, en honger naar kennis en ontdekking. En dat dan allemaal in een maatschappij die vreselijk chaotisch was, en een verhaal dat kanttekeningen en zwarte bladzijdes zit. Die mix maakt het ontzettend leuk om verhalen uit te putten.

Er zal dus niet één moment zijn waarop dit project ooit 'af' is. We gaan ermee door zolang er verhalen te vertellen zijn.

De eerste vier videos staan nu online op ons Youtube-kanaal. Journalist Russell Shorto geeft een rondleiding en neemt de kijker mee langs plaatsen en gebeurtenissen in de Nieuw Amsterdamse geschiedenis.

Het Youtube-kanaal is hier: https://www.youtube.com/user/NewNetherlandNow

De website zal worden gebruikt voor updates, achtergrondinformatie, context en contactgegevens: http://www.newnetherlandnow.org

En voor de mensen op Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/NewNLnow

Dan nog belangrijk: Ergens in de komende maanden zal er in Amsterdam ook nog een evenement plaatsvinden rondom dit project. Met nieuwe videos en interessante gastsprekers. Mocht het zover zijn, dan hoort u het hier en op bovenstaande websites.

Onze dank voor het steunen van dit project blijft onverminderd groot. We hopen dat u net zo enthousiast bent over de koers die we zijn ingeslagen als wijzelf, en staan open voor alle complimenten, kritiek, hulp, correcties en steunbetuigingen die u wilt sturen!

Hartelijke groeten,

Thijs Roes & Heleen Westerhuijs
