The Security Guards
A film by Anneloek Sollart



Synopsis
Security cameras watch over the streets and public transportation in our cities. Our politicians are protected day and night, and a future terrorist attack in the Netherlands is a real possibility. Security seems natural — and, above all, necessary. But are security guards capable of guaranteeing our safety, or do they only give us a false sense of security? Five guards, including Geert Wilder’s personal security guard, let our cameras in on their work, where we discover the impact that the threat of danger — and even terrorism — has on their daily lives.

This film will leave you with something to think about, and a lingering sense of unease.
