Never a Dull Moment is a film about individual resilience in the most turbulent period of the 20th century

at the same time, it’s the record of an adventurous life that is richly documented and meticulously archived by protagonist Sam Waagenaar himself: his personal documents in albums, the countless photographs he took and an unpublished autobiography

these make the events that Waagenaar saw and described in his autobiography an individual experience; a personal narrative that makes history tangible
