Film Notes

The author rediscovers and reworks family films through placing images of three generations (of a Belgian family between 1931 and 1997: himself, his parents and grand parents) next to each other. An exercise to deal with this iconographic and spiritual heritage. Images from the family’s heritage take us back to childhood and play, journeys, relationships, dancing. Personal and yet common, sequences evoke war, man’s first steps on the moon and show themselves in multiple variations: the ideal of perfect happiness.
