Yab Yum

Director: Anna Maria van 't Hek
Intimate portrait of the lust, secrets and inevitable crimes hidden behind the closed doors of the legendary brothel.
Yab Yum tells the story of the legendary brothel that was doomed to go down. Over a decade ago, Yab Yum was forced to close its doors after the exclusive club had turned into a dodgy criminal hub. The people who were once on the inside are now looking back on their eventful past with a nostalgic view. The accounts are both extravagant and painful and take us back to this iconic place where anything was possible that God has forbidden.
