The Belgian press calls
Frans Buyens the least commercial but the most
fertile of filmmakers, always deeply committed
and wholly rational, and Lydia Chagoll, an ardent
defender of Children's Rights, the favourite pupil
and closest collaborator of Frans Buyens.
Why a Buyens-Chagoll DVD collection ?
" the rich work -fiction and documentary films-
of Buyens and Chagoll contains our entire twentieth century;
fight against facism, the fight again racism, laicization,
alternative power groupings, feminism, psychoanalysis,
free-thinking, but also euthanasia, child abuse, theatre
invented by a troop of young actors with Down Syndrome..."
