Trailer and teaserposter ‘Don’t Shoot’

Don’t Shoot, the new film by Stijn Coninx, is coming to the cinemas on October 10th, but the teaserposter and trailer were released today.

The film is based on the book and life of David Van de Steen, and is told from the point of view of David’s grandfather. 25 years after DAENS (nominated for Best Foreign Language Oscar), director Stijn Coninx once again teams up with Jan Decleir who plays the role of the grandfather.

The story: November 9th, 1985, a gang carried out a bloody raid on the Delhaize Supermarket in Aalst, Belgium. The so-called Brabant Killers brutally murdered eight innocent people, among whom were Gilbert, Thérèse and Rebecca Van de Steen. Nine-year old David Van de Steen, although critically injured, survived the shooting. His parents and sister were among the final victims of the infamous gang. David was now an orphan and his grandparents took on the heart-wrenching task of trying to give him a new perspective on life and help him build a future. Grandfather Albert, fought for over 25 years to bring the killers to justice. To this day, the killers who murdered 28 people between 1982 and 1985 have not been identified. It is the biggest scandal in the history of Belgian justice.
