Amsterdam Global Village

Synopsis

Johan van der KEUKEN, the most esteemed and prolific of documentary filmmakers, has a knack for scratching at the surface of things and showing them as they really are. In this four-hour epic, the filmmaker portrays his hometown of Amsterdam. On this momentous journey, his camera leaves no corner or cranny of the city unproved, gliding effortlessly along the city’s canals, streets and squares. He also follows several trails back to their routes far from the city, accompanying a young man back to his village in Bolivia and following a Jewish woman back to the mansion where she was reunited with her son after the war.
