Little Baby Jesus of Flandr – En Waar de Sterre Bleef Stille Staan (trailer) – Gust Van den Berghe

My man Gust is on award tour, for yesterday the wildcard for best feature film at the Leuven Kort 2009 festival went to… ‘Little Baby Jesus of Flandr’, his graduation project, and first long play feature film. Congratulations Gust!

I’ve had the honour and privilege to see the film already three times, and I must say it is highly conceptualized in its essence, perhaps the strangest Christmas tale I’ve seen in a long while, yet not in a disturbing way. References with Von Trier and Lynch will be made, which is nice, watch the trailer:

“… adapted from the old Flemish play “En Waar de Sterre Bleef Stille Staan” by Felix Timmermans. A compelling story about three poor beggars, going around caroling on Christmas eve for money, food and liquor. They end up getting lost in the woods and witness the birth of little baby Jesus.”

You might know Gust as Gusto Producto, one half of MadeInJapan and from the Cum* documentary yours truly made with him – which will soon be online by the way.

    Nick vertelde me dat je langspeler de moeite zou zijn. Ik ben erg geïntrigeerd geraakt door enkel al het zien van je trailer. Wanneer en waar gaat hij te zien zijn?

    Mijn bewondering is groot…
