The brand new documentary series 'Zillion, the Lost tapes' interviews several witnesses who were closely involved in the operation of the legendary Zillion during its heyday between 1997 and 2002. Using never-before-told stories and images, the docu sheds a unique light on the most fascinating nightclub Belgium has ever known. The witnesses, including former employees and visitors, share their most personal memories of Zillion. They offer insight into the unique atmosphere and extraordinary character of this remarkable nightclub.
When nightclub Zillion opened its doors in Antwerp in 1997, no one could have suspected that barely four years later it would close for good. Nevertheless, in that short period of time, Zillion has managed to become the most mythical and most talked about nightlife venue in Flanders. A club unparalleled in terms of technology and experience. But the success also had a dark side. Using never-before-seen footage, photos and documents from Frank Verstraeten's private archive and unique testimonials from those who experienced it from the front row, this series tells the real story of Zillion.
Besides Frank Verstraeten, Dennis Black Magic (PR-Zillion) and Pat Krimson (Producer & DJ) are featured in the series. As well as VIP hosts, doormen, dancers and even Leona Detiège, former mayor of Antwerp, share their experiences at this high-profile club. Regulars Joyce De Troch and Tanja Dexters look back on those five golden years and even Axel Daeseleire emerges as a connoisseur of the Antwerp nightlife.
This production came into being with the support of Flanders Tax Shelter.
