PARCOURS

LEUVEN IN TIMES OF CORONA

In september 2021 the city of Leuven in Belgium organizes the World Road Cycling Championships.

 

Or maybe not ... because of the Covid 19 pandemic. 

Lode Desmet lives in the old city center, along the parcours of the race. 

From there, he follows the city's life with, and fight against, the virus, and, in its university labs, the race against the clock, to find a vaccin or a cure that would save the world and ... allow the World Championships to still happen. 

 

Every Sunday, until then, his son of nine, Artuur, joins him while he cycles the parcours and films how the city shifts and changes, under the influence of the pandemic.
