Cendres

Juliette Achard & 30' — In progress

In the 1860s and 1870s, many streets were wiped off the map of downtown Brussels and hundreds of residents were expropriated. Now people are being evacuated from empty buildings that are to be redeveloped or even demolished. Sometimes police officers use force, sometimes occupants are taken to a closed center and expelled from Belgian territory. My film tries to make sensitive the violence of an eviction, whatever the time, whatever the reason.
