Highway NL

A cinematographic ode to, and elegy on, the phenomenon of the ever-growing highway infrastructure in the Netherlands.

The Dutch highway system measures almost 2500 kilometres. There is almost no other country with such monumental highway density, nor one whose highways offer up such a range of everyday activities. What kind of society produces this near perfect infrastructure? What does this monumental network say about us?
