Yn dit lânskip leit myn libben.

The new documentary about Frisian literature called Yn dit lânskip leit myn libben', Tresoar wants to get an international audience acquainted with the beauty of Friesian literature in 2018. Film director Halbe Piter Claus and director of photography Ismaël Lotz produced this film for Tresoar. Three writers, Hylke Speerstra, successful Frisian writer of books like De Oerpolder and Op klompen troch de Dessa, Huub Mous, art historian and cultural critic and writer of books such as: De Fries die in de toekomst sprong: Fries modernisme in de jaren zestig, and author Hilda Talsma, know of books like De twadde hûd will each write letter to a deceased Frisian writer. The documentary makers thus try to make popular Frisian contemporary writers and a critic to connect with their literary predecessors in order to stimulate people that are interested the Frisian literature to search for the Frisian literary production over the centuries. Archival images and sophisticated newly created images from all over the province and literary quotes depict the richness and importance of Friesian literature in a film.
