Lucas Belvaux’s film Chez Nous (This Is Our Land) stimulated wide-ranging debate at last night’s packed Filmhouse screening in the presence of the director as part of French Film Festival UK and supported by Wallonie-Bruxelles International. Belvaux noted that a social media campaign erupted to do down the film even before the first trailers of the film appeared in cinemas. The National Front agitators lambasted the fact that the film was appearing in France in February so close to the Presidential elections. Belvaux told the audience that “it is not a militant film: it is a committed film and a civic-minded film, designed to provoke discussion.”
