Ieperlaan / Boulevard d'Ypres
Video director Sarah Vanagt has chosen her own street, the Boulevard d’Ypres, as both the setting and theme of her latest project. Urban development and gentrification threaten this ‘Mediterranean’ area. So in order to memorialize her street, Vanagt went out to meet shop owners and anyone else she came across, assembling their stories to create a fairy tale.
