We would like to invite you to be part of FilmEU’s International Cineclub organized by the partner universities of the European University FilmEU.

Cineclub is a recurring film (film – animation film) evening for students. In addition to watching films, you also get the chance to talk to guest speakers (directors, ...). The films will be linked to the host country and will be selected based on a predetermined theme. 


Five film nights will be organized throughout the academic year of 2022-2023. Each partner in turn, organizes a night where students are invited in person on their home universities.

February 22, 2023: Cineclub hosted by LUCA School of Arts

On Wednesday February 22, LUCA organizes the 3rd edition of the FilmEU Cineclub of this academic year which will be organised in person at LUCA and simultaneously streamed at the FilmEU partner institutions. 

Three filmmakers are invited to screen and talk about their films: Julie Verstraten with the animation film Inertia, Brahim Tall with the hybrid film Tukuleur and Géraldine Charpentier with the animation film Papa Zaza. Julie Verstraten and Brahim Tall are both LUCA alumni who both won the VAF Wildcard this year. Géraldine Charpentier is an animation film alumna of École nationale supérieure des arts visuels de La Cambre.

All three films deal with deeply intimate personal subject matter. Through dialogue we aim to take a closer look at their praxis and which knowledge they could share with our students. 

Synopsis 'Tukuleur' by Brahim tall: Hair, posture and skin colour shift, intersect and alternate, creating a choreography of looks and poses based on representations throughout art history and pop culture. By making its central character ever changing, Tukuleur attempts to show how our gaze influences the interpretation of different bodies in different contexts. The film then shows the consequences of these gazes and their linked representations for the personal growth of the character, and their struggle to find a place between acceptance and otherness.

Synopsis 'Inertia' by Julie Verstraten: Inertia is about J, a young woman in her early twenties, who loses a loved one. Instead of standing still and reflecting on how this loss affects her, she resolutely looks the other way and suppresses emotions. A shadow manifests itself in her flat and slowly takes over her desk, covering her books and drawing materials. J acknowledges the presence but makes no attempt to ascertain its meaning. She keeps running away until she is forced to reflect.

Synopsis 'Papa Zaza' by Géraldine Charpentier: Fleur tells the story of the illness of her dad, Zaza, which disrupts her daily life and that of her brothers as they try to grow up and play, like any child. The disease is shown through a child’s eyes and voice. Here is a new perspective of a common situation: waiting for their father’s return from a hospital is disruptive for children too young to understand everything.
