Planned for summer 2024, directed Ben De Raes
During a hot summer, two migrant workers make their way around Brussels. Niki arrives and looks for work, while Reginald is disillusioned and wants to leave. By focusing the camera on their labour and the everyday, ‘Kapital Europe’ blurs the line between fiction and documentary. The film explores a metropolis of our time, both unique and generic. In that metropolis, the capital of Europe, is haunted by two ghosts, that of Capital, and that of Resistance. But who holds the key?
‘Kapital Europe’ is a social realist story as well as a documentary portrait and a visual meditation. Destiny brings people together against the backdrop of an individualised 21st century, where friendship is a possible form of hope.
