In her short film Katrien Vermeire depicts a unique game that is played on Belgium’s beaches in the summer months. When the weather is good, one can find colorful flowers for sale in small, impromptu-built shops. But these flowers hate being watered or rained on, as they are made of paper. Der Kreislauf takes an intimate look at the young players.

Herman Asselberghs' new film piece adapts the participatory performance of the same name by Sirah Foighel Brutmann and Eitan Efrat to a cinematic format. Seven participants take part in a conversation made up only of questions. The session is not rehearsed or scripted in advance: it is the very first question that triggers this horizontal game of moving thought in what seems to be a moment outside of time.
