The films from Belgium bring personal stories to the forefront of the people working against extremism
through their own experiences such as Saliha Ben Ali that lost her son to radicalisation and Mohamed
El Bachiri that lost his wife at the terrorist attack in Brussels 2016. The films from Belgium also speak of
the academic and religious experiences of the people on the field. Professor Jean-Yves Camus has chosen
to make the work against extremism a profession and an Imam from Brussels view the work as a
responsibility of a religious leader.
The films also highlight stories of those who have been subjected to
hate crime online like Mouhad Reghif, who is a part of the Brussel Panthers. The films also shed light on
hate crime and the victim such as Aimé Schrauwen who is part of the organisation “Brussel against racism”.
He was physically targeted when he stood up against right-wing extremism. The last Belgian film is the
voice of the youth in Brussels, speaking of how they wish European politicians create politics that unite
and not divide us. All the films speak of the resilience of human beings using democratic means to work
for a better society.
