For the 7th time the Erasmus Foundation has organised the Dutch Film Day at the ACMI. This time, as a first, 2 Dutch feature films will be shown. The films selected are both based on true stories. Accused (Lucia de B.) is the story of a Dutch nurse who was sentenced to life in prison, but eventually was released. It is the greatest miscarriage of justice in Dutch history. The second film, A Real Vermeer (Een Echte Vermeer), is about the life of Dutch painter Han van Meegeren, from his beginnings as a rebellious young artist in 1920s Amsterdam and later in Delft, to his rise to infamy as one of the most ingenious art forgers of all time. Both films won prizes: “Accused" for best film at the Milano International Film Festival 2016 and "A Real Vermeer" won the Silver Remi Award at the WorldFest Houston 2017.
