De Slag om de Schelde (The Forgotten Battle) is one of the biggest Dutch films made in the last couple of years, co-produced by Netflix. I assisted editor Stanley Kolk on it for two months, after which the editing team changed and we had to leave the production.

November 1944. On the flooded isle of Walcheren, Zeeland, thousands of Allied soldiers are battling the German army. Three young lives become inextricably connected. A Dutch boy fighting for the Germans, an English glider pilot and a girl from Zeeland connected to the resistance against her will, are forced to make crucial choices that impact both their own freedom and the freedom of others.
