Wie als meisje geboren is, wordt toch nooit een jongen

Short documentary, 1971, 30 min.

In her documentary début, Van Brakel wanted to show that the pattern of women receiving education concentrating on housekeeping before becoming a housewife is rarely broken down. With her camera she records revealing statements by girls and housewives whom the maker regards as victims of a complex process of indoctrination. The film was commissioned by the Research Institute for Applied Psychology in Amsterdam.
