Broken Dreams (a documentary and a book) is the remarkable life story of a unique airplane that was supposed to be used for a musical in the Netherlands. But everything turned out different than planned when a terrible accident took place. This incident is used as a starting point for the plane herself to reflect upon her life and the part she played in history, as if she’s an old lady telling her story to her grandchildren. Will there still be a future for this plane or has her story come to an end…
The documentary won the 2015 Best Documentary Docfeed Award and was shown on various film festivals in the Netherlands and abroad, and broadcast on TV in the Netherlands and in the United States of America.
Besides the documentary (52 min), a book was also written by Suzanne van Leendert and Barry Mc Cabe about this plane’s lifestory, supplemented by lots of pictures.
The documentary’s DVD also contains deleted scenes and extra information and is subtitled in Dutch, English and French.
The cockpit of the plane that can be seen in the documentary was converted into a DC-3 simulator. For more information, see www.dakotasim.com
Dakota DC-3 Simulator has taken over the sales of the DVD and the book, so both are available there.
