Heysel Stadium Disaster

Hans Herbots

feature film development


A reconstruction of the 1985 Heysel drama in Brussels, told from the catacombs under the stadium. A football temple turned into a war zone. The catacombs were the nerve center from where all decisions had to be made, culminating in the question whether or not the European Cup Final still could be played?
