Haven tells the coming of age story of a boy in a rapidly changing environment. Sem Langendijk (NL) witnessed the unrooting effects of gentrification during his upbringing in the periphery of a large city. He lost his connection to the place he lived in for nearly thirty years. This body of work is the result of a long-term research project into shifting demographics, waterfront development and the dynamics of gentrification. Haven brings together the environments of different port cities in a documentary fiction, highlighting the transformation of disused docklands and the communities that reside there.
