Commis­sioned by the Hart van Brabant Lions Club, Joost Seelen made a portrait of Tilburg. This jubilee project was intended to reveal the soul of Tilburg. The sixth Dutch city with about 195.000 inhab­i­tants is shown at length. In a series of portraits providing a cross section of the local popu­la­tion, people from Tilburg say what they think of their fellows and the city. The inhab­i­tants sketch a portrait of what is special, typical, what links them and the contrasts of people in Tilburg and their society. In this way locals and immi­grants, the wealthy and poor, middle class and busi­ness people, young and old provide their opin­ions on a variety of issues from the present and past. It provides a cine­mato­graphic mosaic, a richly varie­gated picture of Tilburgers.
