What distinguishes the documentary series is that it is an intimate, honest and true crime drama, says media scholar Dan Hasler-Forrest. He also watched the series himself. “True crime is a popular new literary genre, but stories are not always depicted accurately. In some cases, victims are exploited for the sake of the thriller.”
That was different in the documentary series about the Roenrwald children, according to Media World. “In it you see that the story is made in a respectful and uninteresting way.” This gives the children enough time and space in the documentary series to tell their story. “They explain in their own words what happened in the family all those years.”
This way of working also gives the viewer the feeling that you have gotten to know the children closely, as the media world explains. According to him, this explains why the documentary series won the Televizier-Ring Award, an award given by the public based on the most public votes.
“People who watched the show started to sympathize with the kids,” Hasler-Forst says. “Seeing them at Televizier-Gala, on the red carpet and then in the audience, the audience knows they’re doing a good job. We love it as viewers: a good ending. A nice bow around.”
The prize is for us all.
Children who attended the awards ceremony briefly reacted upon receiving the award on the OP1 talk show broadcast. “It feels like the beginning of something new,” Edino said. “What stayed with me after the documentary is that it doesn’t matter what you’ve been through in life. You never have to be ashamed of it. You can always be honest about it.”
He also mentioned the absence of the other children of the Roenrwald family at a televised event. “I wish we were here with the nines. But in the end, of course, everyone makes a decision to stay in the publicity or get out of the publicity. But I think this prize is for all of us.”
