In 1990, Digna Sinke shot the docu­men­tary Niets voor de eeuwigheid, presenting a picture of the indus­tri­al­i­sa­tion of the Nether­lands through steam engines, railway bridges, facto­ries and working-class houses. These are some­times preserved as indus­trial monu­ments and some­times demol­ished. From the remaining footage of that docu­men­tary, Sinke compiled Afscheid, a short poetic film about build­ings that are about to disappear.
