Section: Future Frames: Ten New Filmmakers To Follow
Lammert lives in a village by the name of Kropsdam. Lammert raises pigeons and his best friend is Frieda. He doesn’t have much else, and as long as he avoids the misfortune of getting mixed up with a company that builds wind turbines, then everybody likes him just fine. And then no one does. Kropsdam doesn’t forgive and the inhabitants know how to make that abundantly clear.
Lammert wouldn’t hurt a fly. He raises pigeons and is interested in little else. Occasionally, he and his best friend Frieda go out. The village of Kropsdam enjoys blessed peace and quiet – that is until representatives from GreenNow energy company show up. They’d like to dot the surrounding countryside with wind turbines, but the community isn’t interested. Through an unfortunate turn of events, Lammert is scapegoated for the entire affair, but all he wanted was a cup of coffee and something sweet… Let’s take a trip to a place where everyone has to be happy, even if blood must flow and heads must roll.
