On the 23th of July 2014 promising director duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, known from Broeders (2011) and Image (2014), started shooting their second feature film BLACK, which is an adaptation for the screen of the popular acheter du cialis en ligne books ‚Black’ and ‚Back’ by youth author Dirk Bracke. Earlier this year Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah were announced by De Morgen to be one of the 14 upcoming talents of 2014. According to their mentor Michaël R. Roskam, well known for writing and directing Bullhead (2011), El Arbi and Fallah are the kind of filmmakers we can expect to see making it to Hollywood very soon. But firstly, they’ll be fully concentrating on their new film BLACK, which is situated in Brussels. We follow a fifteen year old black girl, Mavela, who’s part of a dreadful youth gang, called the ‚Black Bronx’. As she, head over heels, falls in love with a Moroccan boy, member of the rivaling gang ‚1080’, she’s brutally forced to choose between loyalty and love. And there’s one thing she learns very fast: "Once a gang member, always a gang member; you never quit the Black Bronx".
