The shepherd Stijn wanders around the heathland with his herd, living an honest, sustainable life with his wife and two children. Born and bred in the province of Brabant, he is one of the Netherlands’ last shepherds, but life for a modern-day shepherd is anything but simple. Stijn stubbornly tries to uphold his lifestyle while his area of heathland steadily becomes enclosed by a concrete jungle and the market-led economy gradually takes hold of nature management. The film is doing the rounds of film festivals throughout the world this summer, and has been greeted with universal applause. “A visual ode to mother nature” (de Volkskrant). “The unmissable film moment of 2019” (Trouw).

About the Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival
Sultry temperatures, fresh, exciting meals created by Juni Café, beanbags to sit on while your food goes down and a film projected onto a huge outdoor screen. What better way to spend a warm summer evening? On the last Saturday in July and all five Saturdays in August, the Nutshuis garden will be transformed into a cosy open air cinema to host the popular annual Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival.
Our summer exhibition Urban bugs, which shines the spotlight on the insects that are essential to healthy urban life, was an important source of inspiration for the films we selected this year. But it is not only our bee and butterfly populations that are under threat; so much more is in danger of disappearing in today’s world. For example: being a shepherd, the rich variety of seeds, minority languages from all around the world. These films are the result of passionate people enthusiastically trying to turn the tide – sometimes meeting with success, sometimes with failure.
Approaching the theme from a culinary angle, Juni Café will treat its guests to a weekly variation of a dish that used to be a monotonous feature of any party or event: jazzed-up potato salad. The generous buffet dinners in the garden are a tried, tested and far-from-boring formula. Before the Open Air screenings, guests can come and enjoy hot and cold dishes, a salad bar and a selection of delicious morsels from the barbecue.
Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival is a collaboration between Het Nutshuis, Juni Café, Movies that Matter and Cinemien.
Buy your ticket online through the ticket button on this page, or go to the reception desk at Het Nutshuis (only with card).
