Job and the Dutch Free State is a film about an eccentric man I met in 1988 in the squatted premises on Condradstreet in Amsterdam, where a mixed group of artists were living and working. In his strange way, Job embodied a total opposition to all the familiar Dutch virtues: a total non-conformist, he had not the least interest in sucess or money and had no idea of the meaning of fashions or trends. He lived apparently unaware of space and time, but he seemed to see something in stones and wood chippings that no one else could see.” - Rosemarie Blank
