March 5 • 4:45 pm • Room 2

Through the eyes of these characters, mixing fiction and documentary, we are thrown into a universe of those we rarely want to see or hear. It all starts with an argument about drugs. “A sort of UFO this feature that tames Liège, the multi-layered city, with the strength of relentless filming”, says Cinevox. The magazine Nova adds, “In spite of a destructive, survivalist philosophy, reminding us of Abel Ferrara’s visions, this feature still guards in itself a bit of goodwill mankind”. Selection of the Brasilia Film Festival (Brazil), Honourable Mention in the Underground Film Festival and Bronze Award in the 12 Months Film Festival in Rumania. With Luc Hélin, Olivier Picard, Romane Dideberg and Soufiane Lachhab.
