Highway NL

In the Netherlands we have almost 2500 kilometres of motorways, a higher density than almost anywhere. Highway NL is a hypnotic documentary about the monumentality and the seemingly ordinariness of our motorways, a fundamental part of our landscape that we seldom look at closely.

A unique road movie about the fascinating world of our roadway network, from abandoned nature to the road surveillance systems. Ben van Lieshout’s film serves not only as a lament against problematic growth but also as an ode to the remarkable beauty of the planned, the landscaped and the ordered character of our ubiquitous infrastructure.

SUN 13 OCT 19:15 – LV ZAAL 1, including Q&A with filmmakers Ben van Lieshout & Digna Sinke.
