The Meelfabriek in Leiden has been vacant for a long time, but is now in transition into a modern complex with private homes, businesses, hotel and wellness center. Video artist Inge Reisberman has been working in the flour factory for years, sometimes with the assistance of filmmaker Michiel Keller. Together they have conceived the plan to make a tribute to the empty factory complex with its raw beauty.
A current employee of the flour factory, who has known the building for years, and has therefore also acquired a special connection with it, makes his rounds through the buildings. He says goodbye to the spaces in his own way. An end of a period.
