GÖTTER VON MOLENBEEK
Athos’ mother is from Finland, his father from Chile. The six-year-old lives in Brussel’s Molenbeek district, infamous for being an Islamist hotbed. With his best friend Amine and the cool Flo he does a lot of thinking: about different cultures, about death – and about gods. Reetta Huhtanen’s documentary shows the world from Athos’s point of view: While there’s a terror scare in the background, the kids playfully discuss the meaning of life – this is one of the most hopeful films of the year.
