DE ECLIPS VAN SINT-GILLIS

This film follows the erratic rhythms of life in Sint-Gillis/ Saint-Gilles, the bustling Brussels neighbourhood that, at the time, was home to ninety-nine nationalities (there are more today). From the perspective of filmmaking partners Peter Krüger and Peter Brosens, both living and working in Sint-Gillis, the viewer becomes intimately acquainted with local lore and trash. Moments of harmless anarchy are punctuated by intensely quiet moments. Nothing looks out of place because there is no such thing as ‘in place’ in Sint-Gillis. The filmmakers situate themselves as such. They, too, watch their surroundings from a ‘dislocated’ or ‘removed’ point of view.
