Ascension Day Feature film, 2018, 90 min.

IN PRODUCTION. Brussels, June 2016. Soldiers all over the city. The streets are empty and abandoned. Wannes (58), a separate Flemish family doctor, spends his days in his old-fashioned apartment In Brussels. He visits very different patients on home visits. Migraine patient Mehdi (17) lives more on the streets than at home with his parents. Mehdi reminds Wannes of his son, who is F-16 pilot in Iraq. Alba (36), an outdated Italian translation interpreter for the EU parliament, lives high in a new residential tower. She tries to get rid of the emptiness and monotony of her work and to chase away the loss of her family with drugs and going out. Ascension Day tells the stories of three people who are each lost in their own way in an occupied city.
