Observations 1: My Street
Observations are six short documentaries which examine everyday life in a melancholy and humorous way. The observations radiate the joy of looking.
1 - My Street
Construction work on an Amsterdam street.
2 - Evening
At Amsterdam’s Albert Cuyp market, the stalls are taken down every evening. The garbage truck comes dangerously close.
3 - Lock and Quay
Ship traffic along the locks. We see what two people do when they have to wait for hours.
4 - The Big Whale
The ferries transport their passengers across the IJ harbour. A film about the meditative aspects of waiting.

A look behind the scenes of the Dutch army. We see the conscripts during their first field exercise.
