SAGA SACHETS, LÉGENDE DU VAL D’OURTHE ET DE L’AMBLÈVE

Jacques Louis Nyst - Danièle Nyst
Saga Sachets are light envelopes that are carried on air currents. They arrive shortly before spring at the Ourthe and Amblève valleys, where they land upside down.

THE BUILDING

Hans Op de Beeck
'The Building' is a digitally-generated animation film which takes the viewer on a virtual, nocturnal walking tour of a fictitious, massive hospital.

RUNNING AROUND

Ria Pacquée
In this absurdist take on an 'Urban Trail' Ria Pacquée drifts through her hometown Antwerp while intermittently encircling various objects and structures she encounters. A run down kiosk, an artificial hill with a playground slide, a battered metal curb, a hexagonal flowerpot, a concrete ping pong table; all of which would easily disappear in the dense fabric of the urban environment...

KUNST ALS KRITIEK. WANNEER IS KUNST GEEN KRITIEK? 3. WANNEER HET KUNSTBEZIT EEN PRESTIGEZAAK IS

Jef Cornelis
Part of a series of short themed sketches surrounding the question “When is Art NOT Criticism?", ’When art collection is not a matter of prestige’ is an interview with Frans Baudouin, the curator of the Rubens museum in Antwerp, on the occasion of the acquisition of a high-priced self-portrait by Rubens...

BULLY BEEF

Wendy Morris
Bully Beef explores Belgian selective amnesia and its lack of empathy. The statue of General Jules Jacques, World War I hero and colonial agent in Leopold II’s Congo, is the film’s central motif. Standing in the market of Diksmuide, the statue operates as the connection between two imperialistic events: World War I and the colonisation of Congo...
