The Forest Is Like the Mountains

Pădurea e ca muntele, vezi?

Didier Guillain & Christiane Schmidt, 2014, DE, DCP, ov ro st fr & ang, 101'

On a hill on the edge of Romanian district capital Sfântu Gheorghe there lies a Roma village, although you’d never guess that it’s so close to a town. The streets are unpaved, a horse and cart is used to get around and the fields are tilled with a scythe. The Roma live in tune with nature and harvest whatever the land currently offer. One thing they always need is wood for heating. Yet surviving in the present day has become increasingly difficult.
The steady hands of Christiane Schmidt and Didier Guillain succeed in capturing the lives of this oft-scorned and vilified people with extraordinary depth and complexity. It is as if one is on hand to experience the changing seasons with them, pulled into the flow of this family community.

Gigolo

Hubert Marécaille, 2015, BE–FR, ov st ang,

Pushing 25, Didier finally yields to the repeated advances of an obviously charmed and wealthy mother. Enough, at least, to convince him with money that a night in her company would have everything to please him. The legs in the air sessions to help him make ends meet continue and refine his skills in the art of erotic stimulation. Then one day, spending his time between the legs of faceless undesirables to fill his fridge, becomes an obligation and a weight upon his shoulders.
Hubert Marécaille films Didier by accompanying him daily, before and after his performances. Clearly nervous but open to the process, this man exposes himself and his life in a challenging and sensitive manner.

Chantale Anciaux, 2014, BE, HD, ov fr , 66'

Halfway between poetry and realism, "Une ferme entre chien et loup" tells the everyday life of Belgian farmers André and Marie-Thérèse, their children and grand children, and their animals. But "la ferme de la Barrière" is going to close, because no one is going to take it over once the owners will be retired.
With her film Chantal Anciaux reflects on the future of farmers and their traditional way of life that bears the looming up of regulations and standards.

Phenix

Catherine Libert, 2015, BE, super8 > video, ov fr st ang, 72'

One summer, he just stepped out of the open window, without so much as a word. the window stayed open and a dark stain of deep emptiness engulfed Claire’s eyes... So one day, without looking back, she just left. Left to the end of the East (Ostende), all the way to the sea. Throwing her heart and soul into bottomless nights, crowds of anonymous silhouettes peppering the promenades. Is it better to fill the void or fully experience it?
