Gwenaël Breës

Gwenaël Breës was born at the end of 1973 in Brussels. In his youth, he created fanzines and hosted broad- casts on free radios. When he left school at the age of 14, he started to be self-taught in activities such as journalism (he has initiated and coordinated several publications, and published two investigative books on social issues), or the animation of so-called « alternative » cultural venues in Brussels. He is one of the founding members of Cinema Nova, opened in 1997 in the centre of Brussels, run by a collective and which offers an original research programme dedicated to contemporary independent cinema. He is very interested in urban dynamics and has directed or co-directed several radio creations and documentary films (short and feature films, self-produced or collective) on these issues, in the context of Brussels. In a Silent Way is his first film that takes a completely different trajectory, starting from a more personal subject, shot in another country and benefiting from a real production.

In a Silent Way
2020 is powered by Doc Alliance, a creative partnership of 7 key European documentary film festivals. Our aim is to advance the documentary genre, support its diversity and promote quality creative documentary films.
