Portfolio - Amsterdam Stories USA

a portrait of Small town America

Amsterdam Stories USA is a road-movie tracing 15 small places in the United States, all of them named Amsterdam. 

Two Dutch filmmakers, Rogier van Eck & Rob Rombout, cross the country from East to West Coast.

Through landscapes, encounters and stories of the Amsterdams and of the road in between, the 6-hour film progressively weaves a singular image of the provincial and unknown “small town” America. 

The result is an intimate portrait and radiography of a protean country
