Amsterdam Stories U.S.A Part 2: South
Rob Rombout & Rogier Van Eck, 95 minutes, 12A
A road-movie tracing 15 small places in the United States, all of them named Amsterdam. Two Dutch descent filmmakers, Rogier Van Eck & Rob Rombout cross the country from East to West Coast, from their arrival in New York (former Nieuw Amsterdam) to California. Through encounters and stories of the Amsterdams and on the road in between, this long and arbitrary adventure 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. The 6-hour feature length documentary is divided in 4 chapters of 90 minutes each: East - South - Midwest - West.
