I have always wanted to leave Charleroi and always wanted to film it - to record the passing of time there. I return to the city, caught between a buried past and a future yet to be invented.
This is the portrait of an industrial city with its collapses, mutations, landscapes and language. A film that features René Magritte, a camp of homeless people, key figures in urban revival, the inventor of the Big Bang, Les Zèbres (Royal Charleroi Sporting Club), socialism, the mute astonishment of childhood…
A back and forth through different space-times from which emerge, backlit, the lights of the Black Country.
