Seuls: Short Work 1’

With Seuls: Singular moments from Belgian film history, the online film platform Sabzian brings film programmes to the screen linked to the release of a unique selection of text material on it's website Sabzian.beSeuls: Short Work 1’ is an adaptation of the first Seuls programme, organised by Sabzian in 2017 and screened at the KASKcinema in Ghent.

Seuls: Short Work 1’ reflects the diversity of Belgian cinema. Filmmaker, cinema and Zen teacher Konrad Maquestieau once typified Belgian cinema anti-conformist: “This country harbours a tradition in which individuals, completely unrelated to each other, manage to make films in the most idiosyncratic way. Films that do not conform to any norm, regulation, school, fashion or theory. Their images are unique. The 'tradition' is characterised by independence, diversity, subjectivity, daring, inventiveness, audacity, and humorous subversion. Here, the inexhaustible imagination is central.” The name Seuls ties in with this; it brings into focus a film culture consisting of a kinship between soloists who explore all possible mechanisms of imagination.
