Original Title: Coveted East Indies
Director: Deane Dickason
Production date: ca. 1938-39

A public-domain footage I found on - thought better share it here!

These are scenes from the latter years of Dutch colonialism in Indonesia - and it appears much of the footage has been shot around 1938-39.

Some interesting scenes of Menteng.
The footage is full of street scenes, colonial lifestyles and 'orientalist' landscapes.


This film appears MOS, but originally had sound and was produced and narrated by the radio world travel radio commentator Deane Dickason. Interesting silent portrait of cultural life in the East Indies during Dutch colonialism.
