Brussels open air cinema shows legendary Belgian film Les Barons

Why not come after work to Leopold’s park, just in front of the Museum of European History?  Have a drink while you wait for the film screening of “Les Barons”.

To enjoy the Indian summer, meet some nice people and watch – for free – a film, which has been nominated for six Magritte awards, a sort of Belgian Academy Award.

With the arrival of the EU institutions, the Quartier Leopold had changed its character: offices instead of communicative environment. To bring a little bit of life back, eQuama (European Quarter Area Management Association) with offices in the King Baudouin Foundation, has been created with the key idea to use the squares for a revitalisation of the EU Quarter.

One of these initiatives is, “Film in the Park”. Last week, Brussels sauvage was screened.

This week a Belgian comedy film, “Les Barons”, by Brussels director Nabil Ben Yadir, tells the story of three immigrant youths in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. As ‘barons’, they know the art of loafing like no other, but, as is so often the case, when real life crashes unpleasantly into their dream world. Hassan, Aziz and Mounir are forced to deal with life, love and the future.



After a networking drink at 18.00, the film will follow at 19.00. Blankets and pillows are available to keep you warm and comfortable.
