For this edition at Kantien, Motel Opgedoekt teamed up with curator Cedric Muyres from Chasing Reels. Together, they share two titles from the US to celebrate the independent film scene. On Saturday 22 August, you can watch Thunder Road. This film, written, directed and performed by Jim Cummings, will make you cry and laugh at the same time. It impresses right from the start, with a 10-minute opening shot, in which police officer Arnaud comes to grips with his mom’s death giving a heartfelt eulogy at her funeral. The title for Sunday 23 August will be announced later.
