Staat van verzorging

Documentary, 1987, 64 min.

Famous documentary by the duo Schmidt and Doebele about Mr. Neuteboom (89), who is confined to a wheelchair, and his neighbour, Mrs. Versteegen (66). Because Mr. Neuteboom had nobody left in life, she decided to take care of her neighbour. Watching their excursions along different authorities, it becomes clear how complex and confusing society has become for people like them. Together, they thread their way through our welfare state.
