The Molenbeek district of Brussels has become famous as a centre of suicide bombings and social unrest; Reetta Huhtanen captures the area through the innocent eyes of Aatos and Amine, two imaginative 6-year-olds who live in the same building block. Aatos is of Finish-Chilean descent, while Amine comes from Brussels’ notable Muslim migrant community – together they ponder existential questions of god, religion and the meaning of life. With refreshing clarity, the inquisitive children strip spirituality down to its basic principles and question knowledge itself.
