Chan is an authentic Belgian performance director. Through his energy and his ability to gain the trust of his actors, they dare to fully be themselves, and even transcend themselves.
In 2004, he directed his first feature film ‘Close Up’, an underground thriller that most filmmakers or reviewers kept in their vaults, or passed on as a cinephile’s secret : “An explosion of talent”, for Stubru and Klara.
“Fresh and spontaneous, vitalistic and existential, the New Wave of young cinema has arrived, according to the Director Julien Vrebos.
“Close Up is not a typical Flemish movie, but every Flemish filmmaker should see it!” dixit Dany Deprez from Art Cinema Off.
There is a fresh wind blowing over Belgium and filmland, it’s name is Chan.
