In Occupied, Peter Downsbrough shoots “la cité administrative”, a Brussels administrative complex built in 1958. The framing emphasizes the architecture of the site, while slow travelings reveal a deserted place. Filming this pure uninhabited architecture provides strong experience of time and space.
