Fantoomwijk

  • 14'
  • Netherlands
  • 2023

The Tweebosbuurt in Rotterdam has turned into a ghost town. After the residents were uprooted to make space for luxury homes, all that remains are ruins and rubble. Fantoomwijk gives a voice to the residents, who reminisce about their own neighbourhood that was erased from the city. The film investigates how perceptions determine policy and the ensuing impact on those affected. Filmmaker Ravi Sandberg won the RTM Pitch Prize at IFFR 2022, which allowed him to realise this film.
