FOBBIT

Performance
2009 / Steigeisen (Brussels)

What happens when soldiers who have been trained to kill are sent to a conflict zone where "resolution", "diplomacy" and "reconstruction" turn out to be the key words? For Fobbit, actor Jeroen Van der Ven and director Thomas Bellinck interviewed soldiers and a war correspondent. These interviews form the backbone for a documentary production about Belgian soldiers deployed in Afghanistan at a time when warfare masquerades as peacekeeping.
