“Documentary in two parts (…)about the activities in Amsterdam’s ports. We see images of shipbuilding, of the shipping traffic on the IJ* and the Amstel, and the transfer and storage of goods. The Oranjesluizen connect the IJ to the Zuiderzee. At the end of the film, we see the SS Prinses Juliana departing for the Dutch East Indies. The passengers enter the ship, followed shortly afterwards by the Indonesian crew. The Prinses Juliana sails to the North Sea along the North Sea Canal, via the port of IJmuiden.”
