|OPENING / INAUGURAL FILM /|
Brussels, Royal Theater of La Monnaie. Three actors who work there are cited with three people at the end of their lives, and together they leave for the backstage of the great Belgian Opera on a journey through their most secret corners. They rehearse a decisive work that we will never see. Three portraits in the anteroom of death that, without needing to step on the main stage, talk about the tragedy of the body and the transfiguration for art. (FILMAFFINITY).
