Once again, the NFF looks beyond the Dutch borders and screens several outstanding co-productions with our southern neighbours, including features Dealer and Nowhere and the documentary A Parked Life.
After writing the screenplay for D’Ardennen, making two hip-hop records and reaping international fame with the short coming-of-age movie August, actor Jeroen Perceval (Rundskop) took the director’s chair for this feature debut. Dealer portrays the fourteen-year-old drug runner Johnny (Sverre Rous), who lives in an institution for youngsters with a challenging home situation. When he is visited by the successful actor, and his regular customer, Anthony (Ben Segers), the two develop a close bond. They decide to steer their lives in a new direction.
