NETTOYER SCHAERBEEK / Cleaning Schaerbeek

NETTOYER SCHAERBEEK / Cleaning Schaerbeek

When the terror alert level in Belgium was raised, the Interior Minister announced he was going to clean up the infamous Molenbeek district. Meanwhile, a resident of the Schaerbeek district discovered strange proceedings in front of her window. She informed the authorities and filmed what's happening ... An amusing look at paranoia and the obsession with security.
