New York, NY - March 27, 2013 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release of Meet the Fokkens, a film by Rob Schröder and Gabriëlle Provaas, which was an Official Selection at Hot Docs, SilverDocs, and IDFA. The film, which Kino Lorber released theatrically last year, was praised as "Thoroughly entertaining and charming! A good-natured delve into Amsterdam's famous - and infamous - red light district" (Mark Adams, Screen Daily) and "A delightful portrait of good-natured extroverts" (Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News).
Now, Meet the Fokkens comes to DVD, with a street date of April 2, 2013, and a SRP of $29.95.

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 carried 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.
