In Kropsdam Is Iedereen Gelukkig / Greetings From Kropsdam

A film by: Joren Molter

Lammert wouldn’t hurt a fly. He lives with his fancy pigeons and his best friend Frieda in the small Groningen village of Kropsdam. His tranquil life is disrupted when he is suspected of making a deal with the energy company GreenNow, in order to have a wind turbine built on his land. Lammert is oblivious to this: he doesn’t want anything to do with wind turbines. Yet he notices that the village starts treating him differently. Because everyone is happy in Kropsdam, unless you’re out of luck.
