Aufseherin

Animated film - Based on a real story

This film is dedicated to
Hebe Charlotte Kohlbrugge
( 1914 - 2016 )

‘It’s the mid-second world war. Hebe is a member of the Dutch resistance. When she gets captured by the Nazis she pretends to be someone else and they seem to fall for it. But how long will it take them to figure out that she is not who she says she is… and what will happen to her if they do?’

Aufseherin is an animated short based on the story of world war II Dutch resistance woman Hebe Kohlbrugge.

Aufseherin was my (Wilbert van Veldhuizen) graduation project for the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU).I was very lucky and honored to have interviewed Hebe Kohlbrugge personally in september 2015.
I based Aufseherin on a small part of her story.
You can listen to her complete story at (Warning, the interview is in Dutch):
