Dennis Buijser works as a plumber on the Fenix Warehouse II construction site. Although the word ‘plumber’ isn’t really accurate anymore. The word comes from the Latin word for lead - plumbum. “I still call myself a plumber, but that name is outdated. Lead is toxic. People are no longer allowed to work with it.”
In the film you'll find below, made by Rotterdam filmmakers Gregg Telussa and Debbie Kleijn, you meet Dennis. He tells what he does in Fenix Warehouse II, what he likes about his job and about the similarities between his work and being a football goalie.
“If you love your trade, Fenixloods II is the place where it all comes together. It ranges from handicraft to working with new materials. Actually, it’s a dream for any plumber.”- Dennis Buijser
