Event Details

Meet Louise and Martine Fokkens: 69-year-old identical twins who have worked as prostitutes in Amsterdam's red light district for over 50 years.

Louise is newly retired due to arthritis (“I couldn't get one leg over the other”), but Martine carries on, unable to support herself on a state pension. Between explicit scenes of her daily grind, she and Louise stroll the city in matching outfits, recounting hilariously ribald stories from a lifetime of sex work. (Discussing a client who was a chaplain, one recalls: “Don't you remember, we even had a little confessional!”)

An immensely affectionate portrait of two women who have seen and done everything (and everyone), Meet the Fokkens is a rollicking and revealing look at the world's oldest profession in the 21st century.




"Thoroughly entertaining and charming!" - Screen Daily

“Meet the Fokkens” holds your interest, mostly because the sisters are good company, no matter who they are. They’re funny and kooky.  A double Dutch treat." The New York Times
