About the author
Rozemarijn, pleased to meet you. Interested as I am in very many things - cities, musicians' biographies and early morning swims to name but a few - in the end I like to stick to the basics: music, food and the image. Suffering from limitless energy and curiosity, I'm always up for something.

Whether it’s Modeselektor and Apparat, Moleskine and Trouw or Paradiso and Concerto: we all love a nice collaboration. This month Kriterion and &Foam team up for a selection of four fashion classics to be shown every Monday in January. Each film is chosen and introduced by a fashion scene insider, respectively curator Martijn Daniel Nekoui, up-and-coming photographer Sophie van der Perre, designer Frans Molenaar and well-known photographer Paul Bellaart. Queue up, I’d say.

The Dreamers (2003) by Bernardo Bertolucci

January 7th, the Modern Classics series will be opened by Martijn Nekoui, the curator of the new exhibition by MOAM for this year’s Fashion &Foam, at the &Foam concept store on Vijzelgracht 78. His choice is The Dreamers, about a young American studying in Paris at the time of the 1968 riots, who – after meeting a French brother and sister – is sucked into an erotic conflict in which all innocence is lost.

Factory Girl (2006) by George Hickenlooper

On January 14th, photography talent Sophie van der Perre will introduce Factory Girl, a biopic on ‘It girl‘ Edie Sedgwick, who climbs the New York social ladder in top speed after meeting a young Andy Warhol. Slowly she loses all sense of reality.

Una Giornata Particolare (1977) by Ettore Scola

The classic of January 21st is Una Giornata Particolare, chosen and introduced by designer Frans Molenaar. The film, set against the first meeting of Hitler and Mussolini in 1939, shows the development of a special friendship between an Italian housewife and her homosexual neighbour – a friendship that changes their world views.

Les Valseuses (1974) by Bertrand Blier

Photographer Paul Bellaart chose Les Valseuses for January 28th, in which two aimless criminals focus on taking away anything that is of value to the bourgeoisie, that being cars, daughters or peace of mind. A passive hairdresser joins the duo in her search of her own fulfilment.
