Filmed entirely on ice-skates over a period of twelve years, this documentary by Leendert Pot shows a beautiful image of The Netherlands in winter and gives the viewer a taste of what the ‘ice-skating-virus’ brings about. “The Netherlands is a ‘waterland’. All day long we deal with water; rain from above, water from below, swamped land, mud and puddles. Our whole life is one big competition against the mud and wetness. Yet suddenly everything goes hard and you can triumphantly stand on it, causing you to somehow become victor of the endless wetness.
