Brussels’ based Mortierbrigade is known for the kind of ads that you need to see for a second time (and maybe a third) to be able to fully absorb, understand and appreciate.

Director Lionel Goldstein, from Amsterdam based production company Czar, crafted the film into an arthouse movie trailer. It was shot by Lieven van Baelen and edited by Manu van Hove. Sound was done by Cobra Radio Brewery and the music by Guy van Nueten.
