Island in the North

Island in the North is a short documentary about the last few days of the Sophiapolder.

The Sophiapolder is an island in the North, a river between Dordrecht and Rotterdam. The farm on this island is run by Adri de Vos, his daughter Hannie de Vos and her three children. The authorities have decided that it is time to return Sophiapolder to nature. In autumn 2010 all the animals leave the island on an old yellow ferry. Next they break the dikes.
