After several terrorist attacks in France and Belgium, the neighborhood of Molenbeek in Brussels became known as the breeding ground for European jihadism. Coiffure Zaïdi is a barbershop in the heart of the community, where the regulars stop by to chat and watch the news together, discussing recent events with shock and horror. CORNERED IN MOLENBEEK is an impressively focused and perceptive documentary which offers important insights into issues of migration, integration and extremism in Europe today.
