The district of Molenbeek in Brussels has a reputation as the center of jihadism. However, for six-year-old Aatos and his friend Amine, this place is a home. Here, they listen to spiders, discover black holes and fight about what is going to steer a flying carpet. Together they search for the answers to life’s big questions. Yet, the brutality of the adult world makes itself known when terrorists detonate a bomb in this neighborhood. Gods of Molenbeek is a wonderful portrayal of childhood friendship and the creation of meaning in chaos...
