Police – Belgium 2011.
During the last year of the reportage Police, I decided to film while I was embed at night with the cops in the town of Nivelles, Belgium. The need came from a repetition of many missions, the sound and the tension that I wanted to write in a different form than photography and talk about the bitterness, violence and absurdism of certain situations of cops lives. At that time, I used an Ipod Nano and a Canon camera to film.
The visual reportage received a national award of the best short film by the Festival 5/5 la Louvière in 2013, and was selected for the Brussels Short Film Festival in 2012.
