Welcome to Sondr!

As a 100% Belgian and independent post-production studio, we are a passionate collective with over a decade of experience and a wealth of knowledge in the art of post-production. The word "Sonder" encapsulates our belief in the realization that everyone has a unique story, and at Sondr, we are here to bring those stories to life.


A documentary about social isolation and the disappearance of a generation of small independent shops in Flanders. For almost three decades, a ringing bell on the door was the soundtrack to their lives. Only on Sundays it was quiet. Some of them died, but others still stand behind the same shop counters. The three grocery shops in this documentary are the last of their kind, with the shopkeepers all fighting for existence, and for the sake of their regular customers. This film tells the story of a generation that is about to vanish.
