Nova Zembla the first Dutch 3D movie Premieres in Amsterdam

Nova Zembla the first Dutch 3D movie premieres in Amsterdam today. Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima are attending the gala premiere at the Amsterdam RAI Theatre.

The film directed by Reinout Oerlemans is coming to a big screen near you this Thursday! And even better … it will be in 3D.

Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes will star in Nova Zembla and Actor Robert de Hoog plays the role of Gerrit de Veer. The Flemish actor Jan Decleir plays Plancius Pastor Peter, who initiated the trip. Doutzen Kroes performs the role of his daughter during her film debut, to whom Gerrit de Veer is in love with. Derek de Lint and Victor Reinier take the roles of Willem Barents and Jacob van Heemskerk.

The film is based on the historical and famous sea voyage led by Willem Barents and Jacob van Heemskerck to Asia. The crew was in search of a northern route since the southern one was blocked by the Spanish, but stranded and had to survive under gruesome circumstances on the arctic island of Nova Zembla.
