BRUSSELS — Two family members of the Turkish woman who was severely wounded in the racist Antwerp shootings are making a film about the crime.
Brothers and filmmakers Erkan and Erol Altunbay want to make the racist shooting into a film and are already working on the screenplay.
The fate of Mohamed Bouazza — the Moroccan youth who drowned in the Schelde River in a suspected racist attack — will also be worked into the film.
The Altunbay brothers are closely related to Turkish woman Songül Koç, who was shot in the back while she sat on a street bench in Antwerp on 11 May. She is still recovering from her injuries.
Arrested suspect Hans Van Themsche is accused of the shooting and killing a Malian au-pair and a Flemish two-year-old girl in a racist shooting rampage.
Erol Altunbay said the families of the victims have convinced the two brothers that they don't want the events of 11 May to be forgotten.
It is not yet certain when the film will appear in Belgian cinemas.
