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.


CHARLIE AND HANNAH’S GRAND NIGHT OUT in Dutch with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
