The American Premiere event was held at the Sorenson Theater at Babson College, Wellesley,
Massachusetts. Eight of the film participants traveled from Holland and the US to join us,
and there were an additional 85 Dutch family members and friends in the VIP section of the
theater. 320 American guests filled the theater to capacity, creating a festive air of
anticipation. Tim Morse introduced the film and, after the 82 minute screening, the film
team was treated first to total silence and then to a standing ovation.
After brief comments by the film team, the eight Dutch VIPs came to the stage and conducted
a 45-minute Question and Answer session which endeared them even more to the emotionally charged
A dessert reception followed in the Sorenson Lobby where all of the guests mingled and
enjoyed both American and Dutch goodies.
