Synopsis

Reporter 2021 was a short-lived subsidiary of KRO-NCRV dedicated to reporting on the 2017 elections in the Netherlands. In this animation we explore the then newly formed political party named DENK, its members, and its ideology.


Story

DENK (Dutch for think and Turkish for equality) was formed by members of parliament who had severed ties with their former parties to establish one of their own. DENK's platform addresses social inequalities, which ties into a broader Western narrative that has found its broadest support with (ethnic) minorities.


Result

With some heavy symbolism and our mighty Dutch lion as center piece we gave a fair and balance portrayal of what voters could expect from DENK in following years.
