Summary/Abstract: The paper presents Bruno Dumont’s vision of Flanders. A French director from Bailleul makes no comments on today’s situation of the region, nor does he directly speak of its history. However, he uses its landscape in many different ways in the process of constructing his tales of contemporary post-secular world. In such films as The Life of Jesus, Humanity and Flanders, as well as in TV series L’il Quinquin and Coincoin and the Extra-Humans, locality and topography of Flanders play the role of a microcosmos in which problems observed in the macro scale may be clearly seen.
