The Lock

The Lock ("Verlaat") is a poetic short on the adventures of a young skipper during the German occupation of Holland, seen through the eyes of his grandson.

Steering clear of traditional documentary form, the film uses associative images, soundscape and music to examine the passing on of fears between generations.
