(your) Moral Courage

Niet Alles Is Wat Het Lijkt


What is your moral courage? 

Everybody wants to do the right thing. But do you still dare to do the right thing if it means that, in an everyday situation, you have to break out of your comfort zone and speak up?

In (your) Moral Courage (Not Everything Is What It Seems) three people are facing three ethical dilemmas, putting their moral courage to the test.

The film is, made for, and showcased in the “hall fo reflection” at the renewed museum of the Camp Vught National Memorial. The hall links the perceived history of Camp Vught to current social questions, in particular in the areas of awareness of choice, responsibility and prejudices. Based around the theme ‘commemorating means reflecting’, it makes the story of Camp Vught as tangible as possible and bring this history – and its significance – close to home.
Without a clearly raised finger, the visitor is confronted with the moral-ethical questions. More specifically, Camp Vught National Memorial want to encourage families to discuss this among themselves.

King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands officially opened the new museum for Camp Vught National Memorial. It’s now open to the public.

In October 2021 (your) Moral Courage / Not Everything Is What It Seems was named one of the winners in the category Social Responsibility Not For Profit of the New York Festival TV & FILM!
