'Unless Ever People - CARITAS FOR FREE SPACE'
An old pyschiatric clinic in Melle, Belgium. Already there since the turn of the twenties century. Back then, a unique place, ahead of its time. (...) Its excistence, however, had already suffered a first demolition. Yet, by consindering this a s a chance rather than a loss, an opening came into view. (...) And yet, the building stood there. The building excisted. Except from that the buiklding might turn the usual ideas around - might result in a Wendung. Merely trough its existence.(...)
The movie is a single day. Zooming in. Zooming out. Voices in the background. Circulating ideas. Exchanging thoughts. And even here. Never in view. Yet viewed in imagination. The movie. A final momnet. The moment of today. On the road to the moment of tomorrow. And the day after. (De Vylder Vinck Tailieu)
