Filmmakers Talk | Michel Couturier

Today, a conversation with filmmaker Michel Couturier from Belgium on his film Is this the centre ?, which is selected for the Made in Euregion Short Film Competition during Euregion Film Forum 2023. The short film is about the center of Liège, where the thin pre-stressed concrete slab slightly vibrates as the trucks pass by. It extends over the most part of the square and covers the tangled remains of a Roman villa and the cathedral, two thousand years of history. Skateboarders are tirelessly rolling from one side to the other. It’s also the place where the precarious and the homeless gather; it is also an area for drug business. The dark tunnel keeps swallowing and spitting out its buses. Present and past collide.
