Voor Nederlanders in de Verenigde Staten: film - Niemand in de Stad



Dear Nederlandse Nederlandse,

On Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 we proudly host the film screening of Niemand in de Stad. This recently released and highly acclaimed movie is directed by Michiel van Erp. The film is based on the award-winning novel of the same name by Dutch writer Philip Huff, who co-wrote the screenplay with Marnie Blok. Philip Huff will attend this screening. He will do an introduction talk and a Q&A.


Niemand in de Stad is a coming-of-age story about friendship, desires, and of growing up. The no-mans-land between youth and adulthood offers a chance to invent yourself. But the abundance of possible identities makes it difficult to find who you really are and want to be.

As three young friends stumble towards maturity during their student days in Amsterdam, the sudden death of one of them serves to concentrate their minds. In the course of this turbulent period, they try to break free from their parents and their backgrounds, experience the meaning of friendship and find out who they really are.

In this film the ideas about friendship and love are sharpened: does true friendship offer the space to have secrets? And love, is it the tranquillity and self-evidence of each other's attention and company, or should it crackle with intense passion?
