Romeo and Juliet on the violent mean streets of Brussels.

A stylish and brutal story of forbidden love, the impressively staged Black is driven by a mesmerising lead performance from newcomer Martha Canga Antonio as 15 year-old Mavela, whose love for the member of a rival gang sees her life descend into violence. The film offers a tough glimpse into the dark side of Brussels, which has seen an increase in the number and brutality of teen gangs. Beautifully shot in widescreen, it is an unflinching but compelling drama.
