De nieuwe wereld

Director: Jaap van Heusden
Mirte works as a cleaning woman in the registration centre for asylum seekers at the airport. She is a stubborn woman who frenetically tries to suppress her past. She unwittingly keeps her little son at a distance too. She is indifferent towards the refugees’ suffering; indeed, she takes advantage of it. But then she meets the charismatic West African Luc. Through him, Mirte slowly gets a grip on life again. The film provides an apt view of what takes place in an impersonal no man’s land.
