On Wednesday you can come relax with the movie "Tomorrow, demain", which will be played at 19h45-22h30 in aula H6 in Diepenbeek. This English & French spoken movie (English subtitles), selected by Afrika Filmfestival and rating 8.1/10 on IMDb, is a positive movie about climate change solutions:

“Climate is changing. Instead of showing all the worst that can happen, this documentary focuses on the people suggesting solutions and their actions.” (- IMDb)

Watch the trailer of the movie below to find out more.

The movie is for free, but we ask you to register if you will be joining the movie night.
