Wim’s Gang (De Bende van Wim)
Timeless Travel Program
Three passionate motards – Wim Opbrouck (actor), Jean Blaute (musician) and Michiel Hendryckx (photographer) – make an idiosyncratic journey through Europe.
During their trip they shy away from the cliché and stop at special places and people.
Wim’s gang is a boyish ode to travelling.

The Burgundian Conspiracy (Het Bourgondisch Complot)
Quirky travel on the water
In The Burgundian Conspiracy, photographer Michiel Hendryckx sails with the Maria Van Dam, a converted cargo boat, from Ghent to our Burgundian roots.
The series became a tasteful combination of beauty and information.
Successful edition on Canvas / Rebroadcast on Een / nomination TV criticism Prize
Disastrous for the Holiday Spirit (Nefast voor de Feestvreugde)
Satirical Christmas film
In “Disastrous for the Holiday Spirit” a club of friends makes recognizably futile attempts to wrestle through the Christmas period.
Extremely painful for the characters, hilarious for the viewer.
For five years in a row we made a new Christmas film at Canvas’s request, which made “Disastrous for the Holiday Spirit” a standard expression.
Week of Love (Week van Liefde)
Documentary series about love that knows no age
“Week of Love” is a five-part documentary series on Canvas in which actor and theatre-maker Wim Opbrouck meets five women. The youngest is 67 and the oldest is 89. The women show in a moving way that love knows no age.
“Week of Love” could count on strong reviews. In 2017, for example, De Morgen journalist Rik Van Puymbroeck, declared “Week of Love” one of his favourite television moments ever.
A Belgian History (Une Histoire Belge)
Creative docu (ARTE) about Flemings and Walloons
The Flemish and Walloons run through Belgium – along the language border – with the intention of getting a more nuanced view of each other. The documentary is part of TO BE OR NOT TO BE, a documentary collage about Belgium.
The documentary was broadcast on ARTE and RTBF.
