Grands travaux — En ville !
From January to June 2019, Le P’tit Ciné - Regards sur les Docs presents a cycle of Belgian documentary films every 3rd Thursday of the month at 12:30 at Cinema Palace. The program "En ville !" highlights recent Belgian film productions shot in Brussels. It approaches our city through contemporary urban and social issues.
Grands travaux is set in the Institute Anneessens-Funck, a Dutch-speaking vocational school in the centre of Brussels where young students have come to learn a trade. The film both documents and stages that which gives shape to their lives: the practical assignments and classes at school, football, the oscillation of their love lives, as well as the ongoing search for housing and employment. Depicting daily life within the school walls, Grands travaux also aims to sketch an image of Brussels today, placing its youngsters at the very centre.
