Under Construction Festival

  • Minard Romain Deconinckplein 9000 Ghent (map)

Our documentary 'What Happened in the Tent' will be screened at the opening night of the Under Construction - Flemish Palestinian Connections Festival, ten days of music, dance, debates, exhibitions, documentary and more at  in Gent, Belgium. This festival gathers international artists who bridge the distance between Flanders and Palestine.

Our film 'What Happened in The Tent' will be screened on February 16 at 20.30 in Minard! You're welcome! 

What Happened in the Tent is an 'acrobatic' tale told by documentary makers Majd Khalifeh and Roel Nollet, in which they're on the search for the binding power of circus, and its ability to connect people across borders. An exchange project between two circus schools - one at the West Bank in Palestine, the other one in Molenbeek in Belgium - brings two groups of youngsters from vulnerable backgrounds together. Each group has its own story about the way they are perceived by others, but they try to bend the negativity, the violence and the discrimination they are confronted with, into a constructive project. 'What Happened in the Tent' is a question and a statement at the same time. The moment they enter the circus, their world changes. Circus doesn't only mean movements and tricks to them, but a way to deal with the challenges they face in the environment they live in.
