De stad was van ons Documentary film, 1996, 93 min.

In the seconde half of the 1970s, the squatters' movement emerged as a result of the housing shortage while a mass of property was empty. The squatters soon acquired a bad name for their violent outbursts, such as during the inauguration of Queen Beatrix and when they were evicted from several illustrious squats, such as the Lucky Luijk in Amsterdam. The City was Ours unravels the history of the Amsterdam squatters' movement through interviews with the squatters, for whom the political battle was more important than creating living space. There were also squatters for whom political ideology only came second. Tension between the 'hard core' and the later squatters led to a spiral of violence and intimidation.
