Three women in three bars, all in the same street in Cureghem, Brussels. They work seven days a week and the only people they serve are men. While the camera stays and waits with the waitresses, we start to dream of songs playing in other places. Far Away Songs is a film with a feminist point of view on work, waiting and longing.
Evi Cats (1994) studied documentary directing at RITCS in Brussels. Before making films, she completed her masters degree in Cultural Analysis in Amsterdam. Both in her film practice and her theoretical work, she is interested in the city, everyday human interactions and small fictions within reality. Often holding the camera herself, she looks at Brussels and its social structures. Cats is interested in the mixture of people and habits in this kaleidoscopic, ever-changing city. The documentary set in Cureghem, Walls That Scream, premiered at IDFA 2022 and was awarded with the VAF Wildcard soon after. Currently she works on a film about the (feminist) city and its layers of textures and time.
