MEERPAAL

A techno documentary about the industrial heritage of the Port of Antwerp (BE).

Meerpaal, dutch for ‘bolder’, is my techno documentary about the industrial heritage in the old harbour of Antwerp. Antwerp is one of the oldest harbours in the world and the documentary captured the technology behind the original docks, sealocks and bridges before they were dismantled to be replaced by modernity.

 

While being director, I also composed the soundtrack. The music was built from field recordings of the harbour’s beloved steampunk artefacts.
