The Fenix, a documentary by Mark Bakker commissioned by Droom en Daad Foundation

Commissioned by Droom en Daad Foundation, we are making a documentary about FENIX. FENIX is located in the Fenixloods II, on Katendrecht in Rotterdam. Millions of people have set off from the quays around this historic building for a new unknown world. This Rotterdam story is the starting point for FENIX. FENIX celebrates the movement of peoples. On the first floor of the warehouse lies The FENIX Museum; using art and historical objects to tell a timeless story about hope, love, farewell and a new beginning.

The ground floor will provide a space for culinary, creative and cultural activities. Fenixloods II will be extensively restored in the near future. On the roof there will be a viewing platform over the Maas and Rotterdam designed by MAD Architects. After the restoration, FENIX will open its doors. FENIX is an initiative of Droom en Daad foundation.
