NL Transcript (added Sep 14th)

Welkom.
We gaan de film QUATRE-MAINS vertonen.
Dat is een film die ik samen gemaakt heb met co-regisseur Simon Demeulemeester.
Simon is journalist voor de Knack [ Belgian (Flemish) weekly news magazine ].
Die heeft mij aangesproken, met een toch wel heel merkwaardig verhaal, vond ik zelf.
Het verhaal van Koenraad Tinel en Simon Gronowski.
Die allebei jonge gastjes waren, toen in Wereldoorlog II…
en van een heel andere afkomst, de oorlog hebben meegemaakt.
En daar vandaag de dag over getuigen, over de toch wel bijzondere vriendschap.
… De film zoveel mogelijk uit te puren,
omdat het verhaal daar om vroeg.
Om het eigenlijk zo simpel, eenvoudig, en puur mogelijk te vertellen.
Oordeel vooral zelf, of dat het gelukt is.
Dan gaan we nu de film kijken.
QUATRE – MAINS
En ze gaan met hun verhaal ook veel rond hè…
naar lezingen, naar scholen…
Koenraad als kunstenaar.
Welnu , er komt nog een boek nu , in het najaar.
Het is eigenlijk daardoor dat we deze film gemaakt hebben. Dat komt komt in het najaar 2022.
[ Publiek ] Door wie is dat dan geschreven?
Door Simon Demeulemeester, die ook met de film geholpen heeft.
[ Publiek ] Ah ! Die van Knack, ja.
Die van Knack, ja.
In Amerika wordt de film al op festivals getoond.
[ Publiek ] Je hebt al een prijs hè!
In Frankrijk is het beste Europese film geworden.
[ Best European Independent Film 2021 op het ÉCU festival ]
Maar in Belgie dus nog niet [vertoond].
Hij wordt gedistribueerd door Dalton Distribution…
en de bedoeling is dat we hem uitbrengen samen met het boek.

EN CC Translation (added Sep 14th)

Welcome.
We are going to show the film QUATRE-MAINS.
That is a film I made together with co-director Simon Demeulemeester.
Simon is a journalist for the Knack [ Belgian (Flemish) weekly news magazine ].
He came to me with a very remarkable story, I thought.
The story of Koenraad Tinel and Simon Gronowski.
Both were young lads, back in World War II…
and of very different origins, experienced the war.
And testify about that today, about the special friendship.
… To purify the film as much as possible,
because the story called for it.
To actually tell it as simple, and pure as possible.
Decide for yourself whether it worked or not.
Now let’s watch the movie.
QUATRE – MAINS
And they go around with their story a lot too…
to lectures, to schools…
Koenraad as an artist.
Well, there’s also a book coming, in the fall.
That’s actually why we made this film.
That will come in the fall of 2022.
[ Audience ] Who wrote that then?
By Simon Demeulemeester, who also helped with the film.
[ Audience ] Ah ! That [journalist] from Knack, yes.
From Knack, yes.
[ Belgian (Flemish) weekly news magazine ]
The film is already being shown at festivals in America.
[ Audience ] You already got a prize, don’t you!
In France it has become the best European film.
[ Best European Independent Film 2021 at the ÉCU festival ]
But not yet [screened] in Belgium.
It is distributed by Dalton Distribution…
and the intention is that we release it together with the book.

Simon’s PUSH Premiere | 20210910

Simon’s PUSH Premiere | 20210910 | Miracles•Media | Simon Gronowski takes the air after first time watching Howard Moody’s community opera PUSH at the pre-premiere Friday Sep 30th 2016 in the De La Warr Pavilion on the seafront in Bexhill On Sea, UK.

NEWS – PUSH revisited 2021

October 3, 2021 near Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium – Info and Tickets @ imaginair•be

“PUSH revisited” is a reworked version of parts of the PUSH opera in concert form, coupled with a unique exhibition of the work of visual artist Koenraad Tinel, which is steeped in this personal history. The exhibition, curated especially for this occasion, will feature sculptures and drawings from Tinel’s extensive oeuvre. New, never-before-seen work by the artist will also be on display.

“PUSH revisited” will be a location project, hosted by IMAGINAIR, a creative collective that resides in a former furniture factory awaiting conversion into residential project Dijledonk. The collective fills the industrial site with art and with beauty. Here “PUSH revisited” finds a breathtaking backdrop.

“Revisited” also literally refers to the place of action. The site is near Boortmeerbeek, where the train was brought to a halt that day by the three resistance fighters, which is the reason why Simon is still with us today, and celebrates his 90th birthday October 12th.

This project arose as a spontaneous response to a proposal for solidarity. What was originally only intended as financial support for the freelance artists of PUSH has grown into an event to revive the momentum of PUSH together. This project shows the involvement of the artists and their desire to keep this story alive.

“PUSH revisited” is dedicated to Simon Gronowski and Koenraad Tinel. Thanks to their inspiring resilience they show us that, regardless of our backgrounds, we have the choice to do the right thing at any time in our lives. To focus on trust, connection, friendship and hapiness. To be optimistic.

Brussels’ Afghans Flee Taliban

Brussels’ Afghans Flee Taliban | 20210821 | Afghan refugee interview* by Kristen Cattell (USA) & Michel van der Burg (Holland) at the ‘Afghan camp’ inside the Béguinage Church in Brussels, Belgium – March 17, 2014 .

*One Afghan gentleman – who asked to remain anonymous – told us about his journey to Brussels. Interview anonymized by reconstruction using a disguised voice-over and visual and auditory imagery (organ Félix Snyers) captured March-April 2014 in the Church of Saint John the Baptist at the Béguinage in Brussels.

“When you are working with America or other organizations in Afghanistan the Taliban is a big problem. I was with the forces in Kandahar Province for one year. This was a big, big company in Kandahar. After one year the Taliban send some letters to my family saying, ‘Your son is working for the enemy.’ And they said, ‘He will come and he will work with us.’ Then I went to my home. And after the Taliban found out about me, I came to Iran, then I went to Europe, and this country.”

NL vertaling – translation dutch :

“Als je voor Amerika of andere organisaties in Afghanistan werkt, is de Taliban een groot probleem. Ik was een jaar bij de strijdkrachten in de provincie Kandahar. Dit was een groot, groot bedrijf in Kandahar. Na een jaar stuurden de Taliban enkele brieven naar mijn familie waarin ze zeiden: ‘Uw zoon werkt voor de vijand.’ En ze zeiden: ‘Hij moet bij ons komen werken.’ Ik ging naar huis. En toen de Taliban van mij wist, ging ik naar Iran, en vertrok vandaar naar Europa, en dit land.”

Reportage by Kristen Cattell (USA) & Michel van der Burg (Holland).
Remastered 2nd edition of film first published in 2015 (Béguinage shadows | 20151115).
