#1 GHOST TROPIC by BAS DEVOS
screening + talk with the director afterwards
With his Brussels-based roadmovie 'Ghost Tropic', Bas Devos takes a new path. His debut 'Violet' and city-in-fear-film 'Hellhole' already explored what makes a house a home, but took acts of aggression as a starting point and showed how mourning and loneliness can build walls between people. Their impressive, at times distant mannerist photography moved searchingly through a landscape of despair. Emptiness and absence often seemed like the residue of a shot, of the narration, of the thoughts evoked by the films. Now, 'Ghost Tropic' begins in an empty apartment, where no traces of a person are to be found, except for the table cloth and the furniture which are slowly covered in falling darkness. In the film that follows, viewers are invited to make up who resident Khadija is, whilst she walks through Brussels at night on her way home from her work as a cleaning lady.
All films have English subtitles.
