Les États généraux du film documentaire 2014 The Frame, between intuition and intention Mirages

Olivier Dury
2008 - France - Couleur - 46'

Every day, thousands of miles from here, dozens of people are driven by an incredible sense of hope to set out with the intention of arriving in Europe. During the first few days of their crossing from Agadez to Djanet, from Niger into Algeria, these emigrants are forced to confront the time of the desert with its stases, its brutal accelerations and its mineral inertia. The ordeal they undergo will turn them into undocumented immigrants. But during their journey, the film considers them as individuals and for a brief moment, steals them from the invisibility that awaits them.
