The Crash

TV Mini-Series, Color 2022, 5 Episodes x 1h

October 4th, 1992, 18:36. A Boeing 747 crashes into two jam-packed residential high rises in one of the most deprived areas in Amsterdam where mostly immigrants reside: the Bijlmermeer. The Dutch government soon claimed the airplane only carried perfume, flowers and computer parts. Yet both residents and aid workers are left with questions: Why did so many people start suffering severe health complaints after the disaster? How can the plane¿s black box have gone missing? Almost everybody accepts the official account of the disaster, and they go back to business as usual. Except the three protagonists, ASHA, VINCENT and PIERRE they start to look for answers. Together they embark on a search that will take up over six years of their lives and put their careers and their credibility on the line.
