Darklight Presents: Meet The Fokkens
'In the old days, the local copper would tap on the window if a girl was showing too much ankle, now the girls deal coke from their cubicles.'
Louise and Martine Fokkens are identical twins. For over 40 years they were working as prostitutes. They freed themselves from the control of their pimps, ran their own brothel, and set up the first informal trade union for prostitutes. They are familiar faces in Amsterdam's Red Light District, but soon they will bid their farewells.
Meet the Fokkens is a portrait of these remarkable women, as well as a history of the Red Light District over the past fifty years.
