Trading Places

With ‘Trading Places’, Sjoerd Houben focuses on an area's struggle to maintain its identity in changing times. On the edge of a city, a place of industry and business. The images show human presence, traces left by inhabitants, workers and passersby.

Going into various places, and moving around them, Houben comes back to a central point in the work. A flat building that houses almost all inhabitants of the area.

The film is about an 11 year old gymnast that has just won her first big international prize. Her win is just the beginning.
