Review: God of Molenbeek (Aatos ja Amine)

“Gods of Molenbeek” (Aatos ja Amine) is a child’s-eye view documentary from director Reetta Huhtanen about growing up against a backdrop of Islamophobia and terrorism, exploring spiritual beliefs and death. 6-year old Aatos has a deep curiosity about gods, death, myths, and spiritual beliefs. His friend Amine is Muslim and lives just downstairs. Together they listen to spiders dress up as zombies and take imaginary carpet rides.
