  • Cinemaximiliaan started as a pop-up cinema in the Maximiliaan Park in Brussels. What started with a small film projector, grew into a dynamic cultural organisation by and for newcomers. Now, they conquer the big stages in Flanders. The film concert Egged On by Music brings together top musicians from all over the world: from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Syria to Western Europe. Together they bring a strong live score to the silent film Egged On from 1926. The experimental soundtrack mixes pop, jazz and rock with oriental influences. Egged On, from slapstick legend Charley Bowers, acts as the backbone of this concert. In this movie, the main character tries to build a machine to make unbreakable eggs. Egged On by Music thus becomes a groundbreaking adventure, both cinematographically and musically.
