Thanks to the commitment of our partners:
LES ÂMES BOSSALES | François Perlier
France, documentary, 80’
Production: Corpus Films
Synopsis: The "bossales" were the African slaves who won the Haitian war of independence. This term now qualifies a rebellious person, like the protagonists of the film: Charlotte, a human rights defender, Foukifoura, a satirical columnist, Édris, a videographer of the insurrection, Michou, a worker struggling to survive, Ramoncite, an enigmatic voodoo priest. In an explosive social context, they embody the soul of this country, an incandescent focus of political and spiritual resistance.

LES MADELEINES | Arthur Dreyfus
France, documentary, 83’
Production: Tamara Films
Synopsis: Every sunday, at mass time, a man in a bow tie prepares twenty-four madeleines. In the past, these pastries put him off: who wants to bite into a cake bearing his mother's name? But since Madeleine died, Stéphane-Jacques feels like spending a little time with her at tea time.

AGATHE, SOLANGE ET MOI | Louise Narboni
France, documentary, 78’
Synopsis: It is the story of a young woman of today, Agathe, and a young woman of yesterday, Solange. The story of a granddaughter and her paternal grandmother. One is an actress, the other has painted and written all her life. One is alive, the other is not, but her presence remains intense. This is also the film of our funny story, Agathe's and mine. Our paths have recently crossed again, but there was a time before, a long time ago. It is the story of a family film and the time passing.

NE ME GUÉRIS JAMAIS | David Yon
France, documentary, 74’
Synopsis: For a few years now, major renovation work has been changing the face of Marseille. In the Arenc district, towers are being built in front of Ouahib's windows, blocking his view. He would have to leave, but to go where? He wanders around the city of Marseille, camera in hand, to keep a trace of what is going to disappear. Pierre has become blind. He can no longer see the city he has lived in for a long time, but he perceives its changes through sounds. In his apartment, he writes texts about his relationship with the world and his vision of Marseille. Rosalie arrived recently to find the south where she came as a child. She is looking for her way in the city and is studying opera singing.
