Affaires de famille

  • Friday 03.05 – 15h – Studio 5 (Flagey)

Created in partnership with The Belgian Short Film Agency and Dalton Distribution, as part of the project En cour(t)s de route, Affaires de famille – In de beste families’ is a program of 5 short films by a new generation of women filmmakers. These films, both powerful and moving, explore the family in every sense of the term, and offer these young women directors the opportunity to illustrate, each in their own way, the notion of being welded to one another: sometimes by purely genetic ties, sometimes by the recomposition of households, and sometimes by encounters resulting from the hazards of life.
