Portfolio - Amsterdam, via Amsterdam


A cinematographic expedition to the northern and southern extremities of the world


Amsterdam via Amsterdam (80’) is a road movie from the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, towards two homonymous islands.


One is integrated in the French Austral and Antarctic Lands, the other is part of the Norwegian Spitsberg archipelago, in the glacial Arctic Ocean. Two film-makers, Rob Rombout and Rogier van Eck, followed the footsteps of two illustrious 16th-century Dutch navigators :


Willem Barentsz and Cornelis de Houtman


who left Amsterdam to open the routes to the spices islands.
