58 minutes

    Official Selection! — San Francisco International Film Festival

Set within the world of pigeon racing, Patrick Bisschops' insightful documentary presents a microcosm of the racial tensions currently plaguing The Netherlands.

Turkish immigrants have been flocking to the working-class Transvaal neighborhood of The Hague in recent years, breeding resentment amongst the area's Dutch residents—especially the native pigeon enthusiasts.

Not only have the immigrants appropriated their hobby and encroached upon the local bird store, but they've also brought their own variety of pigeons, called "tumblers" because they turn in the air.
