Jan Hoet - Thank God for the GiftLuc Vrydaghs

Jan Hoet: top curator and human being extraordinaire. Using his favourite painting as a guide, Jan Hoet's world comes back to life 10 years after his death. A world dominated by art, where work and personal life are inseperable. A portrait of a restless soul who never stopped looking forward to the future.

A passionate man with an unquenchable appetite for art, radical in his honesty and his belief in total intellectual and emotional freedom. He took art out of the museums and brought it to people, to everyday life. Discover the extraordinary trail of top curator Jan Hoet, and the controversial personality behind it all.

Belgian selection

DOCVILLE presents the best Belgian documentaries of the past year in a very varied selection: compelling stories about people who live for their passion, whether it be cycling, circuit riding or mermaids, but also socially probing stories about illegal adoption, the dangers of criticism under Putin, the link between jazz and decolonization or the abominable conditions in Vorst prison. Finally, there are also films with a more philosophical angle on the transience of the human body or the impact of imaging. The best film may call itself the winner of the Jury Prize for Best Belgian Documentary.
