LUX film awards come to Brussels

November 7, 18:00 and November 13, 20:00, BOZAR (FREE). Brussels hosts LUX film days, screening the three finalists selected by the European Parliament contending for the LUX prize 2013.


Each year, the European Parliament acknowledges films that deal with European policy issues in an artistically elaborate way.  Before the jury decides on the winner of the LUX prize, the three finalists are screened in all 28 EU member states. Brussels will host the LUX film days this month, November 7th and 13th.


The film days start with Felix van Groeningen’s “The Broken Circle Breakdown” that tells the story of Elise and Didier, a seemingly perfect couple. But the idyll is deceptive. When their daughter Maybelle gets seriously ill at the age of six, the couple’s love is sorely tried.


The second contestant is “The Selfish Giant” by British director Clio Bernard. Two teenage failures try to make their living joining a scrapman’s business. Their personalities are however not as aligned as their plans, and soon tensions inevitably arise.


LUX film days end in Brussels with Valerio Golino’s “Miele”. This film is the story of Irene who helps terminally-ill patients to die in dignity by providing them a drug. The plot starts to unfold as she gives some of this lethal medicine to a new client for her project, who is in perfect health…
