Wam Kat and the Nature of Hope

di David Ruf 2011 Germania 71'



What makes a man dedicate all his life to make the world a better place? Raised in a political family, in his youth Wam Kat became a Dutch diplomat, to later abandon his position to live according to his beliefs. Founder of Rampenplan, Europe´s biggest action kitchen, Wam became world-famous as a peace activist during the Balkan wars, as author of one of the first Internet blogs: The Zagreb Diary. Through three relationships from his past, we learn about the backside of his activism, discovering a deeper reason for his everlasting conviction: The nature of hope.
