Sum of Histories Scoops Silver Méliès
Lukas Bossuyt’s debut feature Sum of Histories has won the Silver Méliès for Best European Fantastic Feature Film at the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival in Italy. Moonwalkers, a co-production with Flanders, took home the Audience Award.
The Jury praised Sum of Histories “for showing the compelling interlacement of the characters’ lives within the sci-fi trope of timeline alteration” and also praised the director for “providing an intriguing analysis of the latest discoveries in the field of quantum physics”.
Bossuyt’s film is a love story with a touch of sci-fi. The main character is Viktor, a brilliant young professor who discovers a way to manipulate time. He soon learns that changing the past is not without risk. Main roles are played by Koen De Graeve (The Misfortunates), Matteo Simoni (Marina) and Robrecht Vanden Thoren (Come As You Are); the producer is Caviar.
Winning the Silver Méliès Award in Trieste guarantees that Sum of Histories will compete for the Méliès d’Or, the prize for Best European Fantastic Feature which is awarded
