KIDS OF THE BIMS is a documentary that celebrates Amsterdam’s most ethnically diverse neighbourhood De Bijlmemeer, aka the Bims. On the surface Amsterdam is seen as a liberal capital of the world. But in reality racism and inequality loom large. The Bims has often been an area that has been on the receiving end of these prejudices. And now it is fighting back through unbridled creativity. This film champions the global creative footprint this larger than life PoC community is creating through music, fashion and activism. A community re-writing what it means to be Dutch in the 2020s and representing an alternative European identity that is built on PoC cultures.
