Kamer met uitzicht Short documentary , 2001, 53 min.

In the Transvaal nursing home in The Hague, different cultures live side by side. In Kamer met uitzicht, director Ditte Mensink follows five residents. Apart from the usual strains and complaints - the loneliness, the physical deterioration and the grumbling about the fact that nobody ever comes and sits down on the bench in the sun - the residents must learn to handle each other's customs. A younger Caucasian man who complains that the home is a dull place and is the only one clapping along with the carnival music does not want to use an elevator with a dark-skinned man who is active. 'He shouts too much', he says disapprovingly. And, after a brief silence: 'He's a foreigner.' Mensink lets the residents speak for themselves and shows them during their daily activities in their rooms.
