Encounters that Inspire

A film by ATD Fourth World Netherlands

On September 20 2014, the farm ’t Zwervel de Wijhe, celebrated its its 40th anniversary. The farm has been a meeting place since the very origins of ATD Fourth World in the Netherlands.

For the occasion, members of ATD Fourth World Netherlands recalled the international encounters they have participated in – in Rome, Brussels, Herblay, or Pierrelaye.

Dirk van Heerwaarde, Gerard de Jong, Toon en Lenn van Valkenburg, Ton van de Bruêle et Marion Braad, all of them engaged in the fight against injustice and poverty, share stories of emotional encounters, shared difficulties, and new connections forged during these international meetings.

It is a message of hope and solidarity for everyone who wants to contribute to a world where the rights of all are respected.

The film is also for sale (for 5 euros). To learn more, contact: denhaag[at]atd-vierdewereld.nl
