Pleidooi van een gedoemde moeder
After a horrible attack in the heart of Europe, the mother of the killed terrorist takes the floor. Hundreds of civilians, especially children, died horribly. Without condoning her son or sparing herself, she measures the time in which she lives. In this way she transforms herself, with painful and sometimes resentful pleasure, into a mirror of an entire society.
‘Had my son committed his actions in wartime and in the uniform of our army? He had received a monument.’
Viviane De Muynck gives shape to the mother of a killed terrorist. In addition to a psychological portrait that tries to fathom the motives of the victim, GAZ is. A doomed mother’s plea mainly an argument for humanity and a plea for nuance: a person or his actions cannot be traced to a few motives.
