Antigone sous le soleil de midi

This is the story of Antigone and Creon, the story of Oedipus, his parents and his children, the story of Ismene and Haemon. These people come from a distant country and time: Greece, more than two thousand years ago. But their names have endured through the ages, travelled around the world, and now they are before you, full of love and hate, life and death.

L'ombre portée

A man remembers a little girl with a knapsack, with whom he crossed paths long enough to take a photograph of her at the foot of the separation wall running through the occupied Palestinian territories. What had become of her? Had she managed to climb over that concrete wall, which is eight metres high and 740 kilometres long? From the other side, she answers him. Her bag is heavy, but she’s still walking, despite the darkness she carries.

A Moon Between Two Houses

Plume is lively, chatty, cheerful. Taciturne, on the other hand, talks little, but she watches and listens. Her passion is music.

They live next door to each other, but that, it seems, is all they have in common. Only in the night, with its spooky sounds and looming shadows, do they learn how to find out about each other, smooth over their differences, and become friends.

Chaîne de montage

A single woman tells us – she tells us about Juarez, a town on the border between Mexico and the United States, a town of maquiladoras, factories for women who are exploited at will.  They come from all over the country to work there, and the cardboard shacks have multiplied to the edge of the desert. In 1993, the body of a young woman was fund half-buried in the sand. Dead, raped, strangled. Almost four hundred were found in ten years . . .

Petit Pierre

Pierre Avezard, nicknamed Petit Pierre (1909-92), was born prematurely, “unfinished”, as he would say. Half-blind, almost deaf and mute, he couldn’t learn to read and write. He was taken out of school when he was seven and provided with the trade of innocents: cowherd. In the fields, Petit Pierre observed nature, animals, and men at work. He saw that machines invaded daily life, and that the world was constantly changing.
