Yab Yum, Amsterdam’s legendary brothel, was forced to close its doors more than ten years ago after the exclusive club 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, whilst surrendering to civil life on the outside. Vividly sharing their stories – both extravagant and painful – they take us back to those early buzzing years to let us experience this iconic place through their experiences. Away from the glitter and glam, for better or worse, Yab Yum is more than just a fading memory.

Anna Maria van ‘t Hek, Netherlands, 2020, 75 min. Dutch & English spoken, Dutch subtitles.
