Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne are being awarded the Honorary Dragon Award at the 40th Göteborg Film Festival. The duo created some of the century’s most iconic films, such as The Child, The Son and The Kid with a Bike. Their new film, The Unknown Girl, stars Adèle Haenel and tells the story of a young general practitioner, Jenny. She feels guilty for refusing to care for a girl who is found dead shortly after. The film will make its Swedish premiere at the festival. A retrospective will also be shown at the festival; including some of the Dardenne brothers’ most loved films and early documentaries. The brothers will visit the Göteborg Film Festival February 4–5, and will receive the distinction at the Dragon Award ceremony on February 4.
