The gateway to the port of Amsterdam, the old sea lock at IJmuiden dates back to 1929 and no longer satisfies modern requirements. It is too narrow for the large, modern-day oceangoing vessels, and to make this clear, BIND was asked by the Port of Amsterdam to make a film about the old lock, the importance of the port of Amsterdam for the city’s economy, and why the IJmuiden sea lock is so crucial for the accessibility to the port of Amsterdam.
