BUURMAN ABDI – DOUWE DIJKSTRA

How can you understand a violent past?

This moving short film follows Abdi, a Somali-born furniture designer and support worker. We watch as he reenacts his life, one marked by war and criminality, with the help of his neighbour, Douwe, who happens to be a filmmaker.

Together in a special effects studio, Abdi and Douwe embark on a candid and investigative journey through a painful history, focusing on the creative process throughout.
