Description: This ethnographic movie sends us the photo of the boy who eats, a stark look at Belgium. We spend about one-eighth of our days eating. Luc de Heusch movies these repetitive gestures that seem trivial, yet reveal so much of a particular culture and a civilization. From morning to night, from the store installation to dinner, from the everyday and quick food to the feast, the ethnologist is interested in all social classes. Originally, an attempt of cinematographic ethnography, neutral and distant, intended to define the Belgians by the method they eat. In fact, Luc de Heusch movies his contemporaries as if they were Papuans.

Death and separation, despair, and the desire to live. A fine work that questions the meaning of life.

It is the zone of power. The filmmaker, who worked there for few years as a crime reporter, is extremely familiar with its labyrinthine spaces, its practices, its ceremonies.

Description: "A fisherman, dark-skinned and shirtless, sits in a boat on a quiet river and, before long, catches a fish. The fish gasps for air and the fisherman holds it to his chest until it dies. This sequence—performed by a series of fishermen, of different ages and using different styles of capture—is the spine of the work, interrupted by passages of quiet natural beauty; one shot is a steady, stately pan through scores of trees and empty air behind." - Vinson Cunningham

Description: Easter Island is the second-most remote island from a continent in the world, after the Tristan da Cunha archipelago. It is located in the Pacific Ocean 3,680 kilometres away from Chile (of which it is part), inhabited for centuries by a population of Polynesian origin (for whom its name is Rapa-Nui). Exploited by European colonisers from the 18th century onwards, visited by archaeologists, anthropologists and tourists attracted by the moai, the huge tuff statues that folks its coastlines, and filmed thousands of times, it has a stable population and an administration that manages the existence of the community, including justice. The presence, on this isolated zone from which escape is difficult, of a prison, even if it is a building without walls, is therefore a bizarre paradox...
