Encounter with Aurélie Charon, Amir Hassan film protagonist, and Oriane Jeancourt Galignani, literature editor of Transfuge magazine
Running time 52mn
Four young French people meet in the centre of the country to talk about the heart of the matter: do we need to be similar to share a country?
Martin's last name is France. He's never had to prove he belonged to this country. Sophia came from Algeria when she was 7; her family fled terrorism, and she immediately decided this would be her country. Amir dreamt of France back in Gaza before coming to Paris when he was 23. Heddy grew up in the poor neighbourhoods of North Marseille and struggles against prejudices. This documentary shows how those four young people have managed to carve out a space for themselves where they were told there was none.
