Battles

Year
2015
Country
Belgium, Netherlands
Duration
88’
Director
Isabelle Tollenaere

The echoes of war also reverberate in peacetime. This film takes a patient look, sensitive to tragedy and comedy, at the traces of battle in landscape and memory. An old man in a land swamped with bunkers, a nightly tourist attraction in a former prison camp, an army blowing up old explosives, women working on inflatable artillery. Traces of militarization that find a place in everyday life, while also describing something of the absurd relationship between the two. The director takes us to a twilight world where past and present, war and play, threat and innocence come together.
