De Gliphoeve


It is 1975. Independence has been declared in Suriname. Etta decides to move to the Netherlands with her children. Full of energy and humour, and with high expectations, this strong mother tries to give them a place in their new homeland. But nobody is waiting for them, there is no work and no housing.

-|-
Then they end up in De Gliphoeve, the first flat in the Bijlmermeer inhabited by Surinamese. Despite the concrete, it is warm, swinging and exciting. An entirely new lifestyle is developing with its own clothing, its own music and even its own flat band. But paradise does not last long and the small family is severely put to the test.

A 24-Decade History of Popular Music is Mac’s subjective history of America since its founding in 1776. This abridged version of the show is a highly immersive and outrageously entertaining crash course in the 240 years (and counting) of the history of American culture and dysfunction.
