WARDI

Wardi is a young Palestinian girl living with her family in a refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. She was born there, just like three generations of her family. It is Sidi, her great-grandfather who settled there after having been expelled from his village in 1948. One day, Sidi entrusts her with the key of his former house in Galilee. Has her great-grandfather lost hope to return home one day? Here begins Wardi’s quest for hope…

UN HOMME EST MORT

Brest, 1950. The working class is being exploited for the post-world war 2 reconstruction effort. Labour unions decide to go on strike to demand better salaries. During a demonstration, the police shoots at the crowd and kills Edouard Mazé, one of the demonstrators. A filmmaker, René Vautier, is summoned by the Labour unions to make a film about the strikes and the workers’ conditions. The film is shown across the region accompanied by Paul Eluard’s poem “A Man is Dead”.
