CHARLIE AND HANNAH’S GRAND NIGHT OUT
CHARLIE EN HANNAH GAAN UIT
2017, 75 min, Belgium, Dir: Bert Scholiers

Charlie (Evelien Bosmans) is witty, inaccessible and, as she puts it, “fundamentally dialectic.” Hannah (Daphne Wellens) is chatty, high-strung and constantly love-struck. They are enjoying a night on the town when one of them discovers a magical candy, and suddenly body parts can talk, pineapples can fly and the two young women can traverse the galaxy with ease. A playfully surreal look at the neuroses and intoxicating possibilities of life at 26.


THE FIFTH SEASON
LA CINQUIÈME SAISON
2012, Films Boutique, 93 min, Belgium, Dir: Peter Brosens, Jessica Woodworth

In an isolated Belgian village, spring mysteriously fails to follow winter, and teenagers Alice (Aurélia Poirier) and Thomas (Django Schrevens) watch as their farming community slowly succumbs to in-fighting and despair. Shot in extended takes, this haunting film is a follow-up to co-directors Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth’s earlier examinations of man’s relationship to nature, KHADAK and ALTIPLANO. In French and Flemish with English subtitles.
