The New Ice-Age shows the specific conditions under which four young factory workers live, three sisters and a brother from a large family, all employed in an ice cream factory in the North of the Netherlands. Sharply selected fragments from these lives are intermingled with the themes of neo-colonialist exploitation, population-growth, migration to the large cities and self-rule, witnessed in contemporary Peru. Certain lines already evident in Diary and The White Castle are continued and clarified here. Thus the three films, with their visual impressions of Northern and Southern Europe, Africa and North and South America, join to form a unity in theme and style.
