This ‘explanimation’ is part of the interactive documentary, 'The Industry - Mapping the Dutch Drug Economy'.
The Netherlands is the number one drugs country in Europe. Weed is in our genes, coke enters the country through the harbors, and XTC is as Dutch as chocolate sprinkles. How is it possible that in a regulated country like the Netherlands drugs can be produced and traded on such a large scale?
Meet the housewives, students, dock workers, weed growers, coke barons, drug traffickers and other people that tell stories about the kicks and stress of their illegal work. They are all links in the chain of this multimillion euro drug industry. Their personal stories are linked to locations that can be explored in 3-D: navigate weed farms hidden in attics, suburban areas where XTC is traded, Dutch harbors where barrels of coke are intercepted, the infamous Dutch ‘coffeeshops', and many more.
Language versions: Dutch and English.
