      Hi Eleni. Sorry for the late reply – we still have to get used to this whole internet-thing I’m afraid. I have tried to find a subtitled version of the documentary for you, but I couldn’t find it. It’s quite old and has only been aired in the Netherlands as far as I know of, so I doubt anybody has ever translated it…
