War Zone Amsterdam

2030: War Zone Amsterdam is an exercise in imagining the unimaginable: a state of war in your own city in the year 2030. A cease-fire has just been announced, and a group of international artists, theatre makers, filmmakers, journalists and intellectuals go out into the city to investigate what the war has done to Amsterdam and its inhabitants.

Papa Sakho  tells us what we see

About what happened to the Schiphol People,
How they died in the fire.
And also about meeting the migrants.
Why the people move to die in the water.
To get a better life."
