Max Havelaar by Fons Rademakers( visu )
5 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in Dutch and held by 93 libraries worldwide
Fiercely critical of the Dutch system of colonial exploitation in the East Indies, Eduard Douwes Dekker's mid-19th century novel (written under a Latin pseudonym which means 'I have suffered') helped bring down the system's base in slavery. The experience of Max Havelaar reflects Dekker's own as a colonial administrator in Java. The Dutch harness a despotic native ruler to maintain their own power. Rademakers saw his film adaptation as being not so much anti-colonial as anti-despotic. While setting the film in the lush beauty of Java, Rademakers does not shrink from portraying colonial terror and genocide. This film was banned in Indonesia (but finally released in reduced form in 1988) for reasons not entirely clear to the Western viewer, although the neo-colonial romanticism implicit in the portrayal of some of the native people was probably not one of them
