On 28 may, exactly three years ago that Stig Broeckx miserably crashed in the Baloise Belgium Tour. Two motors tried the riders to catch up, but arrived in the group. Broeckx got a heavy blow on the head and ended up in a coma after two brain haemorrhages. And the doctors thought that he was in that vegetative state would remain. “The doctors said, looking but a nursing home”, told his mom earlier in ‘Slang’. “He was lying there so completely wrapped up in the hospital, like a mummy. He moved not. Then I thought, I've lost him.”
But Stig fought back. “After a half-year, we saw an initial response. If he with his eyes, blinked, or his thumb a little could move, we were so happy.” The young man is now working desperately to his rehabilitation. “I will as soon as possible back to a normal life,” sounded the al.
The fight that he leads against his body inspires a weekly basis a lot of people realize, Goens. He wants Broeckx also continue to follow, even after the ‘Slang’. “We are With begin to follow in January 2018. Soon came the idea to make a film,” he says in het Nieuwsblad. “And then I don't have a reassembly of fragments of Slang. I'm talking about new images that go beyond the rehabilitation of Stig, because that is the focus of Slang. In the film we leave the cocoon of the rehabilitation centre and the family house, and we see how the Stig the thread with the daily life record.”
The software maker wants the movie to the level of the cinema lift. “I hope that One is interested will be to the film broadcast, but secretly I hope they really go to the cinema. We will continue to run at least until after the summer.”
