The Lord is an Onion

English and Dutch Drama Feature (in development)

Filming in UK and Belgium



Irene tries to regain control over her daughter Samantha by attempting to obtain an inheritance while travelling back to her estranged family in Aalst, Belgium.


Once there, they get dragged into a local carnival that not only puts the social order upside down but also the lives of these two women.

A fantastic, wistful, loving and critical look at the Aalst carnival in Belgium and those who take part in it.
