European Union Film Festival: Gods of Molenbeek
The threat of the adult world suddenly interrupts the children’s play as the streets are filled with tanks, armed soldiers, and policemen.
6-year-old Aatos and his friends search for the essence of life in a world that is increasingly under threat. In the Molenbeek district of Brussels, the jihadi capital to some, is the familiar home to 6 year-old boys Aatos and Amine. This is where they listen to spiders, discover black holes and quarrel over who gets to command the flying carpet that is to take them to the lands of their ancestors.
They live in the same building, yet come from different worlds. Together they search for answers to the big questions. Aatos wants a god of his own, as Amine already has Allah but the question is complicated by his friend Flo’s belief that people who believe in God have gone crazy. The threat of the adult world suddenly interrupts the children’s play as terrorist bombs explode in a metro station nearby. The streets are filled with tanks, armed soldiers, and policemen. Bedtime stories now evoke images of violence and even friendship is put on trial until an expected twist reshapes their lives for good.
