Take Care Open Air - Campus Etterbeek

Enough of this indoor sobbing behind those mini screens. Cinema RITCS, Pilar and UAB treat your hungry, cinephile eyes and ears to three Belgian film gems. Take Care Open Air Cinema, a free open-air cinema for Brussels students, brings your necessary portion of light-hearted harmony on a large outdoor screen. Do you need a moment of relaxation during this study period? Embrace our take care program and reserve your free spot on one of the three campuses. 

Appealing Mockumentary

A filmmaker receives from the queen of Belgium a request: to make a promotional documentary about her husband. The film should celebrate the competence of the king and bring unity among the Belgian people, through a strict script and directing cues from a bunch of royal advisors. However, whoever said this would be an infallible plan, could not be more wrong. Lightly surreal circumstances bring the king and his advisors to a fantastic road trip through the Balkans. Reality and fiction are mixed well, some absurd flavours are added and the whole is served on a beautiful golden plate. Peter Van den Begin, as King Nicholas III, has more heart than heroism, but conquers our hearts nonetheless.
