The audiences and the critic were unanimous: DocPoint’s opening film ‘Gods of Molenbeek’ by Reetta Huhtanen is the winner of both the Audience Award and the Critic’s Choice award!
The Critic’s Choice was made by Tue Steen Müller, a Danish critic who writes for the website filmkommentaren.dk. Müller says: “The filmmaker has cleverly made a film that puts the magic of childhood in the foreground as a comment to the world around the two boys. It’s charming, it’s what we remember from our own childhood, it’s what a grandfather like me sees so often, it gives hope, doesn’t it? This film will travel the world.”
Congratulations to director Reetta Huhtanen and to producer and cinematographer Hannu-Pekka Vitikainen.
‘Gods of Molenbeek’ will be released in Belgium in spring 2019.
