    Our latest production “Before The Last Curtain Falls” is about aging drag artists who will stand on stage for the last time and will have its Belgian premiere 4th May, 8:30 p.m. at DOCVILLE, Leuven.

    The film dives deeply into the exceptional and heart-warming stories of a group of transsexuals and drag queens in their sixties and seventies, who summon up their bravery to take to the stage one last time. For two years they have been touring in five continents, basking in the success of a spectacular show called “Gardenia”, directed by Alain Platel and Frank Van Laecke. Now, as the show comes to a close, the glamorous aging performers must leave the limelight and go home to the quiet lives they left behind.

    The DOCVILLE celebrates its 10th birthday and takes place from 2nd-5th May in Leuven, Belgium.

    We are delighted to announce that our coproduction with Born Free Media (SA) „Nelson Mandela: the myth & me“ will be screened at this years HOT DOCS film festival in Toronto, Canada! It will be shown on April 26th & 28th as well as May 4th. Khalo Matabane’s film has already been awarded with the IDFA Special Jury Award and broadcast by the BBC. On April 23rd next, it will be on arte. Matabane asks global thinkers, Apartheid-victims and Mandela’s entourage – ranging from the Dalai Lama to Colin Powell – to classify Nelson Mandela’s achievements, thereby providing a multi-facetted approach to his myth. His recent death at the high age of 95 offers the opportunity to reflect upon his legacy beyond sainthood.
