Direct Dutch Filmclub: Sunday 31 May


On Sunday 31 May there will be a new edition of Direct Dutch Filmclub with Dutch movie ‘Kauwboy’ (2011).



Kauwboy (director Boudewijn Koole) is an unforgettable movie about a boy growing up in less than ideal circumstances. One day 10-year old Jojo (Rick Lens) brings home a young jackdaw (in Dutch: kauw, pronounced as ‘cow’), that fell out of his nest. Jojo has to keep ‘Kauwtje’ hidden from his agressive father. ‘Kauwtje’ and Jojo grow a deep friendship, but will Jojo be able to solve the problems with his father?

Kauwboy won the ECFA award for ‘Best European youthfilm’.

The movie is suitable for 9 +.

Direct Dutch filmclub

Four times a year Dutch language school Direct Dutch Institute and Bibliotheek Den Haag, organise a filmclub with Dutch movies for internationals living in The Hague (and surroundings).

Since everybody is required to speak in simple Dutch (no English allowed), this is a great opportunity to actually speak Dutch! Of course there are teachers present who will help you with your Dutch.

In the course of the afternoon, we will watch the movie and discuss it in small groups, ending in a group discussion. 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.
