Description from the film-makers:
"Suwanne" is a short documentary about Suwanne and her home, a self-fabricated fairy-tale wagon on the ADM. ADM is a squatted area and cultural freehaven in the western harbors of Amsterdam. The inhabitants have organically grown their own village and participate in a communal village life. Suwanne was among the first group of people, who squatted the ADM and has lived in the village for the last 18 years. Her motivations to join the ADM turn out to be environmentally and societally grounded. But also mark a turning-point in her personal life.

The Cultural Free-haven ADMamsterdam is currently seriously threatened with eviction by the owners of the terrain (Amstellimo BV and Chidda vastgoed BV) owned by the heirs of the infamous and mafia related real-estate speculator, Bertus Lüske
They claim to have signed a lease with Koole Maritime BV, which starts out on October 1st. 2015
Three (!) separate legal procedures have been started against us, as of yet
Around 130 residents, ranging from 0 to 80, are currently living between hope and fear
For almost 18 years we've been creating a sustainable community, turning an abandoned and derelict shipbuilding-yard on the outskirts of Amsterdam, into a life laboratory and oasis for the free-spirited and thinkers, in co-operation with the nature around us, by our own means, and with no single cent of subsidy
All over the terrain there are various protected bird species, mammals and wild-flowers to be found, (So far officially established: natterjacks, bats, owls and orchids)
We've hosted around 900 concerts, 100 benefit-events for 3rd. parties, 40 festivals, 10 WinterGames, 7 Bakbrommer-races, 5 Robodocks, 3 SleazeFests and countless other public events
We also support and perform at various other festivals and events in the Netherlands, Europe and the world.
From Oerol to Fusion (DE) and BurningMan (USA) and from RollendeKeukens to TerraMadre(IT) and Macau (HongKong)
