King Of The Belgians — feature film

King of the Belgians is the fourth feature by Venice Lion winners Peter Brosens & Jessica Woodworth. King Nicolas III is on a state visit in Istanbul when Wallonia, Belgium’s southern half declares its independence. The king must return to save his kingdom. But a powerful solar storm distrusts all telecommunication and air traffic. The king and his entourage are now stuck in Istanbul. With the help of a British filmmaker they manage to escape from Turkey, incognito among a group of Bulgarian singers. Thus begins an odyssey through the balkans in which the king discovers real life and himself.
