EN - This documentary revisits the memories, dreams and nightmares of a dozen men, women and children in Haiti a year after the earthquake. The film’s protagonists are all friends and acquaintances of the filmmakers which allows for a unique access and perspective on a society that does not easily reveal itself.

FR - Que faisiez-vous lorsque le tremblement de terre s’est produit. Où étiez-vous le 12 janvier à 17h ? Ces questions sont toujours sur toutes les lèvres des habitants d’Haïti, encore aujourd’hui, un an après la catastrophe. La réponse est des histoires de survie et de mort, de sombres rêves. Mais à quoi ressemblent les rêves après un tel événement ? Ce documentaire soulève les souvenirs, les rêves et les cauchemars d’une dizaine d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants haïtiens après le tremblement de terre. Les intervenants du film sont tous des amis et connaissances du réalisateur de ce documentaire. Cette proximité permet un accès et une perspective sans précédent sur une société qui ne se dévoile pas facilement.

The Circle and Goudougoudou to Doxa Film Fest

Bram Conjaerts’ The Circle and Goudougoudou by Pieter Van Eecke and Fabrizio Scapin have been selected for the Doxa Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver (3-12 May). The Circle has also recently received an invitation for Hot Docs, where it will screen end of April.

The circle summaryThe Circle revolves around the Large Hadron Collider, a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France, about 100m underground. A 27km long particle accelerator, it is used by physicists to study the origin of everything. The results and interpretation of the collisions of particles should revolutionise the understanding of the universe and how it began. In his documentary, Conjaerts leaves the scientific aspect of the experiment and follows the 27km circle above the ground in an existential search for local people with an opinion on what’s happening below.
