Nova Zembla, the first Dutch film to be shot in 3D, tells the story of the daring expedition to establish a northern sea route from Western Europe to Asia, by sailing east through the Arctic waters above Russia. The year is 1596, and the Dutch Republic is at war with the Spanish Empire. Conventional trade routes along the African coast are controlled by Spain, and the Dutch, impoverished by war, are desperate to find an alternative to reach Asia. Stern expedition leader Willem Barentsz is played by Derek de Lint, known for his roles in the Paul Verhoeven films Soldier of Orange and Black Book. Other major roles are filled by newcomer Robert de Hoog and Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes.
