They have just arrived in Belgium. Newly arrived immigrants from Syria, Irak and Morocco who will have to follow a mandatory integration course in Flanders, called inburgering. To obtain their certificate, they will have to learn habits and customs of Flanders and Belgium. With humor and tenderness, the film follows these characters throughout their journey.
After studying film at IAD (Belgium), Pablo Munoz Gomez met huge success with his graduation film Welkom. Tinged with surrealist humour, the film deals with language-related problems in Belgium and won the Magritte for the best short film in 2014 (Belgian academy award). It was selected at more than a hundred film festivals all over the world and received many international prizes. In 2016, Pablo Munoz Gomez returned with Intégration Inch'Allah, his first feature-length documentary, for which he immersed himself in the subject for three years. The movie follows newly arrived Arabic immigrants during their integration course in Antwerp. With humor and care, the film patiently observes these individuals' daily lives.
