Film about hundred years postcards
Digna Sinke keeps postcards as long as she can remember. Cards she received on birthdays, cards sent to her parents or relatives, cards she found in old shoeboxes. Cards from strangers.
For about hundred years a postcard was a way to keep in touch.
Often the texts are quite trivial, but have an universal validity at the same time. In those hundred years not only the messages changed, but also the images, the destinations.
Nowadays cards are hardly sent anymore. Pictures of towns and villages are difficult to find. It is the end of an era.
