The film tells the story of three women during a scorching hot summer in the north of France and Belgium.

At the end of summer, when a storm finally descends, these three women will enter into solidarity, as one might join the resistance. They will share a new secret that will bind them together forever. The film, which will be shot from 18 April to 25 May between Brussels and Metz, was produced by Versus Production and co-produced by Les Films du Poisson in France and Prime Time in Flanders, with support from the CCA, VAF, MEDIA, and the Grand Est region.

Shortly after they move, they discover a strange, hidden room that is unlike the others, and which is capable of fulfilling all their desires. Their new life becomes a veritable fairy tale. Kate and Matt give in to all of the temptations that the Room offers them. Money and champagne start flowing like water, but a shadow looms over this apparent Garden of Eden: the Room will bring to light their deepest desire, and will grant them the very thing they have always been waiting for, and which Mother Nature had been denying them… Produced by Yaël Fogiel and Laetitia Gonzalez for Les Films du Poisson, THE ROOM will be co-produced by Belgian outfit Versus Production and Luxembourg’s Bidibul Productions.

  • ZERO IMPUNITY by Nicolas Blies, Stéphane Hueber-Blies and EAVE graduate Marion Guth, producer: EAVE graduate Stephan Roelants has finished post-production. The animated documentary produced by a_BAHN decrypts impunity and how rape is used as a weapon in current armed conflicts. Despite increasingly refined war technology, mass rape is used as a tool of war in modern combat. Some 25,000 to 40,000 women were victims of mass rape during the Balkan war 1992-1995. Twenty years after these crimes, only very few cases of war crimes of sexual violence have been investigated and prosecuted. For the women in the film the rapes remain a dark shadow in their lives enshrouded by taboo. For these women legal justice is the only hope to regain integrity and life. However, justice fails and betrays them all the way to the International Criminal Court of Justice in The Hague. The film has been supported by FILMFUND (LU) and CNC (FR).

From now on artistic Documentaries, Animated Films and Animated Documentaries of all lengths as well as Interactive Works can be submitted to DOK Leipzig 2018. Our Call for Entries will close on 7 July 2018.

"We are excited to discover through your eyes new perspectives on life here and around the world. We are looking forward to seeing films that do things differently, that show an awareness that there are more things between heaven and earth than one can possibly imagine – whether in an animated film, a documentary or a fruitful combination of both. Films revealing how documentary and animated film absorbs and expresses the present. For us, a documentary is much more than a means of transmitting information while animated films use the power of imagination to open up a world that goes well beyond sight and sound. And that's exactly what we want to celebrate with you and your films during the festival!"
