Doel | Beldocs


Frederik Sølberg, Denmark, Belgium, 2018, 70'

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 26 inhabitants left – a colorful crowd of common and uncommon people struggling with techno ravers, curious urban explorers, and political havoc while clinging onto the idea of keeping their vandalized and abandoned town alive.
