Direction Lourdes

She will shake up his life... and maybe yours.

Leopold is an old adolescent. He still lives under the mighty influence of his aging and ailing father who will die very soon.

If he dies, Leopold's structured and ordered world will collapse. He has to save his father but in order to do that he needs a miracle.

For the first time in his life, Leopold takes destiny in his own two hands and makes a trip from Belgium to Lourdes with his father's fancy Rover.

At the very beginning of his trip, he stumbles on a broken down 2CV and its driver : Lola. Lola joins Leopold on an unforgettable road trip to Lourdes.

One journey, many adventures, many challenges, two different characters meet : Leo, serious, fearful, crushed under dogmas, Lola, wild, spontaneous and full of trust.

One day they decided to quit everything and start traveling. The U.S.A., Canada and Mexico. France and Spain. All the countries between Belize and Panama. Taking in impressions of other worlds, of broadening their horizon and mind. With a lot of input, the time had come to put it out.

Two short films were completed, ‘Sunday Stroll’ and ‘Chased’. Sunday Stroll was shot in Bruges, Chased in Hollywood, Santa Cruz and Las Vegas.

After two short films, they started writing two screenplays for feature films. "Direction Lourdes", a French road movie and “Bonnie&Clyde Copycats", an English spoken action film.

‘The Flight of the Humble Bee" that premiered in the ‘Wildlife Conservation Film Festival’ in New York and inspired many people. It also was selected for the Red Dirt film festival in Oklahoma and the Dytiatko film Festival in Ukraine.
