Amsterdam Afterbeat

Short documentary, 1997, 16 min.

Johan van der Keuken edited the remaining footage of his Amsterdam epic Amsterdam, Global Village into this short film. The claps made by sound-woman Noshka van der Lely on the microphone after a take, used later in the cutting to synchronise sound and vision, form a returning pattern. This has turned Amsterdam Afterbeat into a rhythmic cinematographic reconnaissance.
