Altijd Anders in Velzen Noord is a new film directed by Marieke Warmelink specifically for project 'Wijkplaats'. Altijd Anders in Velzen Noord is about the process of "othering". In this process, asylum seekers, refugees and that illegal migrants positioned as "the other" and defined and treated as a separate, distant and disconnected from the host communities in the host countries. In this film Marieke Warmelink changes role with a young refugee girl. The girl voices her opinion as if being a Dutch citizen of Velzen Noord. Marieke on the other hand is now talking from the perspective of a refugee in The Netherlands.
