DJ Okkie

Short documentary about Okkie Vijfvinkel, better known in Rotterdam as DJ Okkie. DJ Okkie has been making radio and playing music for over 30 years and knows the Rotterdam nightlife as no other. This movie shows what it’s like to be a professional DJ and how Okkie feels about the state of Rotterdam when it comes to clubs and parties. Once Rotterdam was a great city to come to at night but over the years the clubs went bankrupt and no alternatives were presented. This caused the nightlife to slowly bleed out to what it is now. This film was made for the protest site ‘Rotterdam is van ons’, which promotes a better, more sensible policy regarding the clubs and nightlife in Rotterdam.
