    • Synopsis
    • MANU is a strikingly unique and touching documentary portrait of a very singular, uncompromising and creative character, the Belgian film director Manu Bonmariage. The film travels through his life and works, intimately captured by his daughter Emmanuelle. A playful declaration of love to documentary filmmaking and humanity, between a father and a daughter, MANU is an uplifting celebration of an endlessly curious mind in the midst of an illness slowly affecting his memory.
