The passing of time in the Port of Rotterdam. Experimental film, animated from
25 angles with the aid of several cameras.
A view from Rotterdam’s Edison Bay on Yangtze Harbor, where Ultra Large
Container Carriers from China are unloaded. A mingling of two more-or-less
different realities: a floating human figure and an industrial horizon.
With a soundtrack of natural and electronic sounds, recorded on the spot. (Edison
Baai, Yangtze haven, Rotterdam, Netherlands +51° 58' 53.45", +4° 2' 50.56")
Director, producer, camera, sound: Michiel van Bakel
