Film club ‘Paard van Sinterklaas’ November 17

Did you practice your Sinterklaasliedjes, prepare your wishlist and do you have your best shoe and some carrots (for the horse) ready to pass it on to Sinterklaas next month? Come to the Direct Dutch Film club and watch the family movie ‘Het Paard van Sinterklaas’ with us!


Six year old Winky, who just moved in from China, definitely does. She wants to ask Sinterklaas for a horse, because horses seem to understand her a lot better than her new Dutch classmates. She has been really good this year, so she can’t think of a reason why Sinterklaas won’t make her wish come true.
Will Sinterklaas be able to find the shoe of this little Chinese girl as well? Will he give Winky the horse she asked for? (And if he won’t – would Sinterklaas mind if she just took along his horse?)

Come and join us at the Direct Dutch film Club in the Centrale Bibliotheek on Sunday November 17 for some pepernoten, a heart warming Sinterklaas movie and a lot of Dutch conversation to prepare you for the birthday of our favourite Goedheiligman( saint). From 13.00 till 16.30 hrs we will be watching and discussing the movie ‘Het paard van Sinterklaas’ (2005). The movie is in Dutch with Dutch subtitles and all conversation will be in (simple) Dutch.

In the course of the afternoon, we will watch the movie (in Dutch with Dutch subtitles) and discuss it in small groups, ending in a group discussion. Of course, we will discuss the film in (simple) Dutch. Our programme is suitable for  everyone with (at least) an elementary knowledge of Dutch who would like to engage in Dutch culture and build on his or her conversation skills in an informal and fun way.
