Son of former KLM employee is looking for fellow sufferers for documentary: “People who suffer from noise at Schiphol”

As the son of a former KLM employee, Leo de Boer knows better than anyone what it is like to be dependent on the airport. Thanks to his father’s work, there was fresh bread on the shelf every day. But he also knows the downside of the airport, and he is now making a documentary about it. To this end, he is looking for people who, like him, experience nuisance from roaring aircraft.

He calls them fellow sufferers, because like tens of thousands of other local residents, Leo suffers from aviation noise. Because planes pass over his home in droves every day, he keeps his windows carefully closed. And where he used to sleep undisturbed, he now depends on earplugs for a good night’s sleep.

Like many others, he regularly complains about noise pollution, but what happens to those complaints? Leo looks for the answer to those and other questions. The documentary is broadcast by NH and co-financed by the Special Journalistic Projects Fund.
