"Genk de ruimte de kracht"


As part of the city of Genk’s commissions policy, FLACC invited this young documentary-maker to produce a contemporary, visual record of the city.
Devillé spent six months in Genk collecting material relating to local history, geography, industry and society. His film formally and rhythmically weaves together information, testimonies and fine images in such a way that the reality is a cross between fact and fiction. Remarkably, the maker managed to involve the Genk community in his project. The burgomaster, local government departments, the KRC football club and former mineworkers and industry made themselves available. The documentary was also shown to the general public as a short film at the local cinema.
