Ex Drummer stirs controversy among Belgian exhibitors

In advance of its world premiere in the Tiger Competition in Rotterdam this weekend, Koen Mortier's Ex Drummer is provoking controversy in Belgium. One leading arthouse exhibitor, Studio Skoop in Ghent, has refused to show the film, which features scenes of graphic violence, rape and self mutilation. Industry sources have even suggestions that exhibitors are nervous about the crude references in the film to former Belgian monarch, King Baudouin, who died in 1993.
