documentary about making new land in the sea.

It is more than 60 years ago that the Noordoostpolder came into being. The pioneers worked in

harsh conditions, shovelling the canals by hand in the vast sand land. The pioneers thought they had

the prospect to a farm. The documentary follows 4 pioneer polder residents who are well into their

eighties, but they remember their adventures as if they happened yesterday. Made for the

Government of Flevoland.
