The nights are still chilly but the blankets and fires are keeping us warm. We do get to start off with a few rays of sunshine or with live music, enjoy the starry skies and the movies, of course. On Sunday, we played host to a whole bunch of cute minis on the Stenen Hoofd. They watched Minuscule and had adventures.

Stop the clock. The nights are moving much too quickly as we’re watching great movies, playing for keeps in the games on the screen, trying to stay warm under our blankets and when that fails, sitting by the fire. The Summer weather is on back order but you’re not bothered. That much is clear. Take a look at the pics by Melanie Lemahieu.

We had live music, played Frogger on the big screen, enjoyed the well-stocked bar, withstood the drizzle (with ponchos, blankets and brollies), welcomed many brave visitors and saw a wonderful film, a black-and-white directorial debut. Take a look at the pictures by Sofie Simao.

That’s a wrap on this Summer of Pluk. It was a good one. A Dutch one. We cast out grey clouds, took shelter from downpours, did sundances, even hid from a whirlwind but we also endlessly basked in the sun holding drinks. And especially, we saw bizarre, wonderful, weird and unique films, gazed out over the IJ and talked things over by a toasty fire. Here are the pictures to reminisce…

The last night of Pluk! How we enjoyed those German thirty-year-olds in Dreissig on the big screen and all those nice visitors on the Stenen Hoofd. We played table tennis, twister, mikado, splashed in the hot tub en gazed out over the IJ. We ate pita aubergine, sausage and banana bread. It was the last one. The last night of Pluk. But it was lovely. Take a look.

Oh, how intensely happy Pluk nights like this one make us. Sunshine, weird, sweet and sensual shorts, a hot tub full of bathers, a field of chairs full of cinephiles and a sky full of stars. We won’t have any trouble keeping this up a few more nights. Take a look below.

We’ve past the halfway point, and how. But the starry night smiles at us. As does the sun. We watched Die Tomorrow, a lighthearted, energetic film about death, from Thailand. And we had a beer, or two. Our photographer was there, clicking away.

Saturday August 17th saw the second edition of Dog Day Afternoon at Pluk de Nacht, with a tight-run doggy race, canine cinema, a dog bingo en of course the dog and owner look-a-like contest. Who took home the grand prize?

The ritual dances have helped: the second half of Pluk 2019 has remained sunny, hooray! On this sixth night we showed Pause on the big container screen, from Cyprus. About a woman who notices the first signs of menopause. So, now we know. What that’s like. It was a great night, take a look below.

After the grey clouds withdrew and the rain passed, it was time for Pluk de Nacht, night 4. We lit up the hot tub, stoked the fires and the darkly comic family drama Happy New Year Colin Burstead, ahem, burst off the screen. Our photographer was there to take it all in.

Tilda and daughter Honor Swinton deserved better. As did all of you for that matter. Wow, did the rain pour from the sky. Though, the film trivia quiz was no less hard-fought. And the tent was warm and dry. That’s where opening film The Souvenir by Joanna Hogg was shown. Our photographer was there as well. Take a look!
