Direct Dutch filmclub May 28

Are you looking for an entertaining opportunity to practise your Dutch? On Sunday May 28 there will be a new edition of Direct Dutch Filmclub with Dutch movie ‘Kenau’!


Kenau (Maarten Treurniet, 2014)

‘Kenau’ is the true story of fearless Dutch widow Kenau Hasselaer. She led an army of women in the siege of Haarlem by the Spaniards in 1572 during the Eighty Years’ War between the Netherlands and Spain. Her heroic deeds have been forgotten and ‘Kenau’ has become a dirty word for women who look and act like men. After watching this movie it will become a huge compliment to be called a Kenau!

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 (A1/A2) who would like to engage in Dutch culture and build on his or her conversation skills in an informal and fun way.
