It had rained almost the entire day. Not really the weather you are hoping for at an open air cinema night. But fortunately it turned out nicely after all. And so we watched the film ‘Land of Mine’ in the garden of the Peace Palace on Friday the 22nd of September.
This film screening was part of the Just Peace Festival in The Hague, just like last year. At last year’s edition we watched the movie HUMAN, this edition ‘Land of Mine’ was on screen. The story is about a group of German prisoners of war who are taken to Denmark, just a few days after the ending of World War II. The group is forced to dismantle the thousands of land mines German soldiers have spread there across the coast.

Carry van Wersch of the Humanity House and Jeroen Vervliet of the Peace Palace welcomed everybody. Then Mirjam de Bruin of the Red Cross Humanitarian Warfare Division introduced the film. She told about the international regulations on the use and cleanup of land mines.
