Take Five acquired the rights to 'Marcinelle 1956'

On that day, August 8, 1956, Belgium experienced its greatest industrial catastrophe.

The «Bois du Cazier» burned, leaving at the bottom of the mine, and forever, 262 miners; 136 Italians, 95 Belgians, 8 Poles, 6 Greeks, 5 French, 5 Germans, 3 Hungarians, 1 Ukrainian, 1 Russian, 1 Dutch, 1 English.

On the 65th anniversary of the disaster, «Take Five» is proud to be able to announce its collaboration with «Casterman» to tell the story of the «bois du Cazier» disaster through the film adaptation of Sergio Salma’s formidable comic book «MARCINELLE 1956».
