Hum of Holland

A documentary about the Dutch soundscape. What does the Netherlands really sound like?

What does the Netherlands sound like? Do we still take the time to listen carefully to the sounds around us? Or is the soundscape so satiated that we prefer to seclude ourselves? How does all this sound affect us? And is there a place left in the Netherlands that is really quiet? With these questions in mind, Stella van Voorst van Beest leads us through the Netherlands to make us experience those extraordinary, everyday sounds.
