Between hero and villain

Ahead of the premiere of Wonka in Belgian cinemas, Ewoud Ceulemans, TV and culture specialist at De Morgen, contacted Leander Duthoy to dig deeper into the motivations behind the famous character Willy Wonka. Duthoy talks about the childhood influences that writer Roald Dahl incorporated into his book, the ambiguity that makes the character so fascinating, and why the book lends itself to successful adaptations.
