Images of a Moving City

Short Film, 2001, 37 min.

With particular alertness to trivialities, director Karel Doing made a documentary poem about the city of Rotterdam and its inhabitants. In a series of contrasting black-and-white images, Doing observes the people, roads and buildings that jointly determine the atmosphere of a continually changing multicultural city. Travelling by car, train or subway, Doing sees the aesthetics of a garbage incinerator just as well as that of a traffic junction. When pointing his camera at the motorway, a slow curve becomes a swirling interplay of lines. In the city, he silently follows a few citizens trying to find their way among the high-rise buildings of Rotterdam. Images of a Moving City is like a visit to Rotterdam, with enough time to wonder where everybody is coming from and where everybody is going.
