Amsterdam's airport Schiphol is Europe's biggest "hub." It is located in the famous "polders," the land the Dutch conquered against the water. Long before there were airplanes here, there were geese. Every year, at the start of the holiday season, there is a safety issue, as thousands of geese settle in the polders around Schiphol. The problem is that both the airplanes and the geese need to fly. The solution is to diminish the number of flights... of the geese that is. As a result, 4000 of the 5000 geese that live in the area need to disappear. In the short film GREY (named after the largest population of geese), filmmakers Rosanne Kropman and Jasper Juinen show the battle between man and animal. One of the men responsible for the extinction of the geese invokes the metaphor of a chess-game: both man and animal are thinking ahead, so it all comes down to smart moves. GREY shows this strange game in a way that will make you think about the geese if you'd happen to land on Schiphol airport this summer.
