Beursschouwburg, Brussels is hosting a new series of film screenings called Tumbleweed. During the five-year residency of Beursschouwburg’s artistic associate Christina Stuhlberger, there will be a screening each year of recent graduation films by young filmmakers working in and around Brussels. Tumbleweed delves into the wealth of the Belgian film and art scene. The films will be screened alongside ‘older’ works from around the world.
In the first Tumbleweed edition, a selection of mesmerizing short films is brought together operating within the realm of the poetic documentary. The selected works explore encounters, connections, and desires unimpressed by the distances and differences that separate one from the other. For this programme, films by young Belgium-based filmmakers are combined with works from the Singaporean filmmaker collective 13 Little Pictures. This young collective operates outside traditional funding schemes and is bound by the spirit of collaboration to create films with distinctive directorial visions. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers including Daniel Hui from 13 Little Pictures.
