Kleiburg, de laatste Bijlmerflat

Watch film

The fascinating account by filmmaker Jeroen Visser about the once-applauded, but rapidly-abused Bijlmermeer in Amsterdam. On completion in the late sixties the estate was called the apotheosis of Dutch public housing. A neighbourhood that would bring happiness to tens of thousands of poorly-housed Amsterdammers. But the neighbourhood was quickly criticised owing to its huge scale, inhospitable atmosphere and lack of security. The Kleiburg block is the pars pro toto where glory, decline and cautious resurrection are visible.
