The Free Market, Documentary
"In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."
American Philosopher, Eric Hoffer
After working at the market for half a year I was given a little glimpse into their rituals and hard physical labur they endure every day. Through the enchanted world of Rotterdam merchants in Europe 's largest market, we discover what it means when the world radically changes and what choices you need to make in order to survive.
