Kind Hearts

Olivia Rochette & Gerard-Jan Claes, 2022

Billie and Lucas, a young Brussels couple, both leave for university facing a year rife with change. Visions of the future, doubts about relationships and the expectations of adult life make up the main material for their conversations with friends and each other. Kind Hearts paints a candid portrait of the formative but also uncertain facets of every (first) love.

with Billie Meeussen, Lucas Roefmans, Romane Van Damme, Charlotte Meyntjens, Rana Hamzaoui, Gaspard Renier & Victoria De Man
