Projection of The Asbestos grave at the Kinograph
Due to its temporary closure due to asbestos removal from the building, the Kinograph is organizing a series of screenings before closing its doors.
Among them, the more than relevant documentary by Nina Toussaint and Marie-Anne Mengeot is scheduled for June 16 at 7:30 p.m.
This one hour and thirty minute film explains with the help of archival images the problem of the use of asbestos in Belgium and the struggle of the victims for legal recognition.
A brief summary of the synopsis:
With the archives of eleven broadcasts made for RTBF from 1977 to 2003, a crucial period in the use of asbestos in Belgium emerges. All the risks were known to the industrialists, but the workers will gradually discover them through illness and death. These are the years before the ban on asbestos, years cynically won by the industry, thanks to its propaganda, its denial and its lies, to maintain its profits.
