“This story takes place in a far distant time, a time of violence. All throughout Europe, a silent war was spreading. In a city there lived two sisters…”

This screening is part of Albertine Cinémathèque Fall Film Series.

Solidarity and Resilience: the representation of the French urban peripheries in French Cinema

This Film Series explores the work of a younger generation of filmmakers such as Alice Diop and Fanny Liatard & Jérémy Trouilh, whose films follow the inhabitants of French urban peripheries and the unique ways that they draw strength and resilience through solidarity.
The Film Series will echo and highlight the original idea by acclaimed filmmaker Alice Diop (We, Saint Omer – winner of the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize and Best Debut Feature at the 2022 Venice Film Festival as well as France’s entry for Best International Feature Film at the Oscars 2023), with the ambition of creating an ideal film library of the world’s urban peripheries, developed by the Ateliers Médicis and the Centre Pompidou (learn more about their monthly program). This project will seek to interrogate and to amplify the voices of a constellation of works who share the same highly political lineage.
In order to encourage a conversation of these themes on this side of the Atlantic, Albertine Cinémathèque has invited Alice Diop to choose 2 films from her ‘Cinémathèque idéale des Banlieues du Monde’ to go along with her film On Call, for this first Film Series.
