In the presence of creator and director Nathalie Basteyns.
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.
Note from the artistic direction
Nathalie Basteyns, a multiple sclerosis patient, refuses the helplessness assessment from the medical system. Armed with unfailing hope, she takes us to Lourdes in this radiant road-series, and makes us, one encounter after the other, want to believe in miracles more than ever. An exclusive and moving portrait.
