Daylight reaches Golden Status

Amsterdam, May 7

Dutch thriller DAYLIGHT has reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold after its theatrical release in the Netherlands on Thursday 11 April 2013. The Film is directed by Diederik van Rooijen and produced by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama in co-production with Inspire Pictures. DAYLIGHT was supported by the Netherlands Film Fund, Eyeworks Holding, CoBO Fund, NCRV, the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and Abraham Tuschinski Fund. The film is distributed in the Netherlands by Benelux Film Distribution.

In DAYLIGHT young lawyer Iris discovers that she has an older, autistic half-brother Ray, who is in prison for the atrocious murder of his neighbour and her five year-old daughter. When she meets Ray he reminds her a lot of her own son Aron, who also is autistic, and she starts to believe that he is innocent. But when she starts an investigation to prove this she is forced to ask many questions, and little by little, despite her hopes and doubts, her true family history is revealed…

The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded.
