Sark, kleine wereld

Short documentary, 2002, 55 min.

Sark, with its six hundred inhabitants the smallest English Channel Island, is thrown into a commotion. In the car and tax-free paradise for rich and conservative British, human rights are the main worry. Strange for an island that has no crime or divorce rates and where the prison doors are only unlocked for the annual cleaning-up. Though part of the United Kingdom, Sark has its own parliament and legislation. But a number of laws are not in accordance with European and world-wide treaties and will have to be modified. For example, only people owning land have a right to a seat in parliament. Seelen captures the fear of change in interviews and casually overheard conversations, interlarding them with images breathing the perpetual geniality of the good old empire.
