Yellow. The Sorrows of Belgium: Rex - Luk Perceval
1933-1936. A young generation – conservative, anti-liberal, anti-Marxist and racist – dreams of a new world order. Belgian politicians, such as Léon Degrelle and Staf Declercq, formed fascist parties and convinced many young Walloons and Flemings to fight together with the SS on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. In 1945 several collaborators were condemned. Some of them, like Degrelle, fled to other countries and took on a new identity.
In the trilogy The Sorrows of Belgium, director Luk Perceval zooms in on the Belgian tricolour and on three darker moments in Belgian history: the exploitation of the Congo under Leopold II in Black, the collaboration with the German occupier during World War II in Yellow, and the terrorist attacks in Brussels in Red.
