Rencontres du film d’art : Kamikaze
Kamikaze is selected for the film festival Rencontres du film d’art in Saint-Gaudens, France. Directed by filmmakers Neel Cockx and Guillaume Vandenberghe, Kamikaze offers a dive into the life of the painter and the abyss of his artistic creation.

Kamikaze was produced by Bart Van Langendonck of Savage Films.
