Still Film Doel

Doel

Doel is a ghost town in Belgium surrounded by a nuclear power plant, a gigantic container dock, and the port of Antwerp. For decades the inhabitants have been battling the authorities who want to tear the town down and build a new container dock. Now there are only 24 inhabitants left – a colorful crowd of common and uncommon people clinging onto the idea of keeping their vandalized and abandoned town alive. Doel is a quirky, humourous, and poetic portrait of six of the remaining inhabitants and their struggle with Dutch techno ravers, curious urban explorers, and political havoc.
