filmstill-soil-siteIn the next coming months we will be researching in the archive of EYE Film Institute. We are looking for films on migration from Amsterdam to the South, in early 1900. With the Koninklijke Hollandsche Lloyd many migrants left via the IJ water to South America. Leaving everything behind in Europe, hoping to find a brighter future elsewhere.

It will be a multiscreen installation, both at the outside of the impressive EYE building, along the IJ water as well as at the inside glass facade, overlooking the IJ water. The installation will run from February 14 – March 7 2017.

We will collaborate with Miek Zwamborn (text), Peter Claassen (video editing), Lumen Film (production). With the support of the Mondriaan Fund and the Amsterdam Fund of the Arts.
