Director: Jan Vromman | Producer: Filip Callewaert
Focus Years: 1999 | Country: Belgium
With the last ship launched from the Boel shipyard in Temse, the construction of sea-going vessels in Belgium came to an end. This documentary chronicles an industry from its early wooden boats to its final days of sophisticated sea-going ships, and at the same time recounts a piece of socio-economic history. Unbridled faith in growth has made room for doubt. "Third part: Hangover 1986 - 1997" Virtually bankrupt, then really bankrupt, sit-down strike, bankrupt again, second sit-down strike, liquidation, the final ships: when giving an account of this process of dying, questions on labor and future emerge. For fear of seeing our material welfare evaporate, we no longer dare to wonder about meaningful labor.
