Synopsis


Morning in the juvenile detention center near Brussels. An incident occurs between a young detainee and one of the guards. No one saw what happened. They say there was a case of aggression towards the guard. The boy tried to hit him so they took him away. Eva, one of the educators, got there just too late. Something is not right. She starts asking around about the incident. No one wants to hear about it. The day progresses and everybody goes about their day. The boys get class and they get some play.Tensions rise when Marcel, the guard, finds out about Eva’s investigation. Everybody’s talking about what happenend at the start of the day.

Intention Note


The idea for the film first came to me when I was visiting a juvenile detention center near Brussels. They recently changed from being a federal detention center to a communal detention center. The biggest change being that there were no more guards around. To my surprise, everyone was very happy about this.  

Some of the educators felt that the presence of the guards alone caused tension between personnel and the detainees. They found that ever since there were no more guards, the atmosphere had become much lighter and thus it became easier to work with the young detainees. On top of that, one educator noticed, some of the guards would sometimes act provokingly and racist...

I want to make a film where nothing is black or white. Where doing the right thing is perceived as being a nuisance. Why shake the tree?


I couldn’t stop thinking about life in the center. I want to portray life there as it is. Portray the kids as they are, kids. Hanging out with eachother and living their lives. Not acting like delinquents but just kids who did something wrong and owning up to it.
Or not...


The portraying of the lives of the people and the goings on in the center should be the main story here. The suspicious incident between the boy and the guard should be the underlying narative that creates tension throughout the day and reach it’s climax at the very end.

Practical and Budget


The film is being made as my Graduation film for my Master's degree at Luca School of Arts Brussels. As it will be my last film in a school enviroment, I do not simply want my film to succeed, I want it to have meaning! I want to it to move people! I want it to be seen!

But I also want to prove to myself that I am ready for the professional world. That I can handle the bigger projects. So I pushed myself to go bigger each time! And now, with a cast of over 10 actors adding to another 10 extras and supported by a crew of over 13 ambitious young people, I have arrived at my biggest production to date.

A production this big will not only need the necesary equipment, the professionals to use this equipment but also a believable location. Because filming in a prison in Belgium is not allowed, we will be filming in The Netherlands instead. Which means there has to be room in the budget for places to stay as well. At this point I would like to justify the budget needed by giving an overview of the projected costs:

Actors = € 3000

Extras = € 500

Camera = € 3000

Transportation/lodging = € 1000

Catering = € 1000

Make up = € 500

Post Production costs = € 2000

Location = € 2000

Total = € 13000

Of the total budget needed, I have already put in my personal savings of 5000 euro that I have gathered over the years. With your support I hope to reach the remaining funds needed to make this film.

Thank You!
