Living Together

Belgian premiere 


Synopsis: 


When Marc Isaacs gets a call from his producer inviting him to make a film in which "sex, crime and celebrity will be the major themes, as this is a profitable niche", he decides, as a contradiction, to turn his house into a film location where the people around him will become the real stars of everyday life. In this Spanish hostel-like film, flirting between fiction and documentary, his cleaning lady, his Pakistani neighbour, the workers in his garden and a homeless man meet.  Through this human and cosmopolitan melting pot, the director invites us to revisit our conceptions of hospitality and to question the social and personal limits that open up or, on the contrary, limit our relationship to otherness.
