Tumbleweed #1: Graduation films by young filmmakers, hosted by Christina Stuhlberger.

We. 6 December - Work by Myrthe Baptist, Sherman Ong, Eva Giolo, Mieriën Coppens, Daniel Hui and Hannah Bailliu

Tumbleweed #1: The Kindness of Strangers - Wednesday 6 December, 20:30

Beursschouwburg is beginning a brand-new series, and its name is Tumbleweed. During the five-year residency of our artistic associate Christina Stuhlberger, each year we will be showing recent films by young filmmakers working in and around Brussels. The Tumbleweed programme delves into the wealth of the Belgian film and art scene, and offers a meeting and conversation space for everyone who has a soft spot for the medium of film. The films will be screened together with and alongside ‘older’ works from around the whole world. The only prerequisite is mutual affinity.

Free - reservation recommended via this link.

Tumbleweed is a biannual film programme that focuses on works by young Belgian artists and filmmakers. The first edition features four recent films by young Belgium-based filmmakers that explore encounters, connections, and desires, curiously probing the distance between oneself and the other. They are accompanied by two films by directors from the Singaporean filmmakers collective 13 Little Pictures, a small production platform that operates outside traditional funding schemes and bound by a spirit of collaboration.

The filmmakers Myrthe Baptist, Mieriën Coppens, Eva Giolo, and Hannah Bailliu will be present for a conversation after the projection, as will Daniel Hui from 13 Little Pictures. CINEMATEK will also host an evening with Daniel Hui on Monday, December 4.
