The theme for the city of Rotterdam in 2016 is Rotterdam Celebrates the City! – inspired by 75 years of reconstruction. As part of this programme, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Smarthouse Films present the project This Is Where Reconstruction Starts. Six young, leading international filmmakers were asked to make a short fiction or creative essay film that takes the theme of post-war reconstruction as its inspiration.
