It is only his first full-length film, but director Julien Kerknawi immediately works with heavy artillery on the set of ‘The last front’. The shooting of the war film is in full swing, but the production is already releasing images of the Belgian and international cast.
The last front is set during the First World War and focuses on two fathers on opposite sides of the conflict. “It’s not about political games, but about the stories of Flemish families who have to flee the war,” says director Julien Kerknawi. “I don’t want to talk about the trenches, but about the fight for survival of the common man.”
