Dear Mr Mayor …

Somaye Dehban shares the story of what Amsterdam’s late Mayor, Eberhard van der Laan meant to her family. Her son was stateless, unable to have a nationality, until they “all became Dutch” at a ceremony the Mayor presided over.

Too dirty for TV?

We have a weekly 19:00 spot on Amsterdam TV but we thought even Amsterdammers might not appreciate Aidan’s naughty humour so early in the evening. So we kept it exclusively for YouTube. And Aidan doesn’t just tell dirty jokes, he can be offensive about a whole range of things …

NB We are very sorry that it’s taken so long for us to edit this series.

NB We also know the sound isn’t great in this video. Just grin and bear it.

BTW If you can’t possible spare over half an hour, here’s a short 7m edit:

The kitchen table interviews | SDL S05E06

This autumn we invited two Amsterdam-based creators over to Cathy’s house to talk about their recent work …

Jesus de Vega, choreographer (jesusdevega.com)

On his piece, Stigma: “I felt that there was a change in the climate … more homophobic voices … I felt that, as  a maker, I wanted to somehow make a stand for the LGBTQ community .”

 

Emilio Brizzi, photographer (emilio-brizzi.com)

“We are given this beautiful memory … so we can recall the time before we were here … And so maybe … it’s good thing to record a time when we are here , so that your children will eventually look back on these years and find some tangible proof of what it was.”

 

Story of a food start up, Pinch

We chatted with the founder of food pop-up Pinch about starting up a food business in Amsterdam. This film premiered on our SO DAM LOCAL TV show earlier this month but you can now watch it online …
