The concept My Street lie down la is simple: make a documentary series on different streets in our country...Each documentary tells about a street and its inhabitants. The choice of streets stops at those whose names evoke a human quest: Peace, Love, Paradise, Joy... This choice gives color to the episode, sets the scene, it is the film's breeding ground.
The strength of the concept lies in the storytelling. The story is built by the voice of the narrator, a red thread, which comes to weave and intertwine the moments of life of the protagonists, making them ring and resonate with the very fabric of life. The voice makes the link between each story, goes from the singular to the collective and re-enchants reality.

Street of gaiety - Binche (S1)

In the center of Binche, rue de la Gaieté is like a link to the Grand Place, the ardent heart of carnival days when oranges and confetti fly. Rue de la Gaieté is a pedestrian street the size of one or two lying Gilles, no more. No car, a shiny cobblestone, it looks like an ageless street. And behind the traditional reports on the Carnival of Binche hide Binchois who have so many personal stories to tell. And if, for the time of a “My Street”, we put aside this impression of “déjà vu” of the Carnival to see with new eyes, the incredible palette of colors of the heart of its inhabitants?
Rue de la Gaieté is an extraordinary street, just like all the other streets !

Rue de la Paix - Ixelles (S1)

To go from the commercial Chaussée d'Ixelles to the thundering Matonge, a direct access: the rue de la Paix. Going from one universe to another is like going from gray to color while crossing a whole palette of characters and stories. It's a busy street, with its hours and moods. In the morning, it becomes a corridor for hurried Eurocrats,

at noon, stop for lunch in Saint-Boniface which for the occasion takes on a little air of Saint-Germains des Prés. At night, a colorful fauna invades it until morning. Everyone comes and goes, ignoring the existence of the inhabitants, shopkeepers and customers who all have a story of their lives that is as true as it is fascinating to tell.
Rue de la Paix is an extraordinary street, just like all the other streets !

Rue paradis - Liège (S1)

Is this street real? A “Sainte-Marie des Anges” church built in the 19th century on the very site of a brothel called “Le Paradis Terrestre”... that is to say that Rue Paradis has always been dedicated to eclecticism. Even today, it plays with metaphors: a contribution building like a slicing sword, a train station like a ship ringing the bell... and what about the humans who frequent it and who teach us the true nature of life? : a mixture of dream, fantasy and reality.
Rue Paradis is an extraordinary street, just like all the other streets!
