Direct Dutch Filmclub Sunday 17 December

Are you looking for an entertaining opportunity to practise your Dutch? On Sunday December 17 there will be a new edition of Direct Dutch Filmclub with Dutch movie ‘Dunya en Desie’! Our program is suitable for everyone with (at least) an elementary knowledge of Dutch (A1/A2).


Dunya en Desie

Dunya en Desie (2008)

Dunya and Desie are two close friends, with very different views on life. Dunya is brought up with Moroccan traditions. Desie is raised by her single mom. Dunya’s parents are arranging for Dunya to marry one of her cousins in Morocco. Meanwhile Desie finds out that her biological father might be living in Morocco. She decides to go to Morocco to seek her father. This is where the girls meet again.

Dunya en Desie zijn twee beste vriendinnen met een heel andere kijk op het leven. Dunya komt uit een traditioneel Marokkaans gezin. Desie is opgevoed door haar alleenstaande moeder. De ouders van Dunya willen dat Dunya trouwt met een achterneef in Marokko. Desie komt erachter dat haar biologische vader misschien in Marokko woont. Ze besluit om naar Marokko te gaan om haar vader te zoeken. De meiden komen elkaar daar weer tegen.

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 program 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.
