The children, Elim Church and ID dance welcome us to Hatert, a multicultural enclave of Nijmegen. Tonnie(78) shares her richly-lived life; Job Kock, is known for the National Award for crawling 18,222 meters on his knees. Kock's daughter Jolanda and Jimmy take us to their Black en White Kapsalon; a therapeutic salon for the multicultural Hatert clientele who come in daily to share their struggles and triumphs. The film is interwoven with the creative steps of ID dance and Wim tours the neighbourhood concluding with an in-depth conversation with Ahmet; the children show us the future.Written by

Using the feature documentary as a base, the film is "experimental"; designed with extensive use of several flairs of cinematic language. Each sequence is designed with a specific tone that collectively interconnects with each other and sets the mood for the audience. The theme music titled "Shadow of mine" was written with a simple orchestration that accommodate several world instruments into play - Dutch flute, German Harp, Turkish Oud, Moroccan Ghita, Ghanaian Fontomfrom and Austrian brass bands. The film is designed into two parts; first part re-enacting silent cinema modalities and the second part using third-person narrative. See more »

Multicolours is a timeless document about a part of the city Nijmegen. It gives beautiful inside information about Hatert without glorifying the neighborhood. The music and clips in this documentary gives it a very nice touch and all participants come from Hatert itself. The people give their view of the area with a glimpse of its history. The music is from the producer himself. Especially the scene on the bike with its camera view was good. The music goes well with the laid back bike ride. Even when you do not live in Hatert, it is good to see this documentary. The music is also multicolours, with instruments from all over the world. If there would be a sequel, I would like to see more diverse people in it.
