Co Hoedeman’s 55 Socks at Montreal World Film Festival du Monde

55 Socks  animation film will have a premiere this week. Please join us August 27th at the Imperial Theatre. Check our Festivals page for time and dates of upcoming screening

Based on a poem by Marie Jacobs, the animated short 55 socks, by Oscar-winning director Co Hoedeman, pays tribute to the ingenuity of the Dutch people during a dark period of their history – the winter of hunger in 1944-45. It’s the closing months of the war in occupied Holland and some women unravel a beautiful bedspread in order to knit 55 socks to barter for food. Reaching back into his childhood memories, Hoedeman has made a simple, poetic film of rare beauty.

  1. Haven’t seen this one yet but I’ve seen other films by (the producer) Laurie Gordon. She is a very talented and dedicated movie maker and her films move along at a nice pace and hold the audience’s interest throughout. She and her husband Krassy Halatchev have a great exciting alternative rock / pop band called Chiwawa so naturally they did the music for this movie too. I wish them good luck 🙂
