Miracle N°71 is the story of Nathalie Basteyns, director and MS patient, who is searching for a miracle. After ten years in a wheelchair, she wants to be able to walk again. Together with photographer Lieve Blancquaert and her nurse Gustave, she travels to Lourdes. In Lourdes, 70 miracles have been officially recognised by the Catholic Church and Nathalie hopes to put number 71 to her name. Miracle N°71 is Nathalie's quest for cure -or acceptance- of her illness.




Draw for Change! is a 6-part documentary series about female cartoonists. Each episode, directed by an acclaimed female director, features a specific cartoonist in a country such as Mexico, USA, Russia, India, Syria, and Egypt. Through a blend of documentary and animation, the series explores various themes such as femicide, freedom of press, and female representation. Despite facing challenges like censorship and death threats, these rebellious artists refuse to give in and strive to change their society.
