A gIFT FROM THE GROUND

2017 - 90'

PRICE OF THE DUTCH FILM-CRITCS KNF

The discovery of natural gas in the northern Netherlands in the late 1950s brought untold wealth, but later on earthquakes as well. As a result, a whole neighbourhood has to be torn down because it is in danger of collapsing. Dutch society has its own way of dealing with these unexpected consequences. Contractors who are assigned to demolish the homes are given a course in 'coping with emotions'; when angry protestors occupy the Safe Housing Centre, they are warmly welcomed and offered coffee.
