NON-LIEU (writer, director)
This six minute documentary explores how the sense of belonging affected in contradictory and irreconcilable ways the life and identity of RAYMOND DEVOS, a French speaking writer whose work strived to demonstrate the absurd in which life is entangled.
It is set in-between two disused border posts, in a zone which technically belongs to neither of the two adjacent countries, France and Belgium.
NON-LIEU tackles the concepts of belgitude, francophonie and patoiserie. By digging into the inherent conundrums of administrative definitions and popular understandings, the notion of “place” takes an interesting turn indeed.
