In 2013 the documentary cinematographers Elias Grootaers, Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes set up the production and distribution platform Zéro de Conduite. The name is a reference to Jean Vigo’s 1933 eponymous film, a lyrical ode to youthful rebellion.

Twice a year, Beursschouwburg asks them to curate a film programme and in 2014 they proposed an evening with music by Joachim Badenhorst and films by Johan van der Keuken as well as the beautiful Chuyen tu te (The Story of Kindness or How to Behave) (1985/1987) by the Vietnamese documentary maker Tran Van Thuy. For the upcoming april screening they'll turn to Harun Farocki and Robert Breer.
