MIjn Diamantbuurt 2011
A beautiful neighbourhood in the middle of the Dutch capital built in Amsterdam School architecture. Unfortunately it’s not such special architecture that gave the neighbourhood fame. Who now says the ‘Diamantbuurt’ right away thinks about gangs and criminality, police and arrests. The bad image of the neighbourhood is sticked to its shining name...

With the assistance of el despacho, nine inhabitants of this neighborhood became directors of their own films.
