Never give up

Never give up, 2017.

15 mn. HD, color, stereo sound.

Following the dismantling of a camp, ordered by the Pas-de-Calais prefecture in March 2016, a group of refugees is forced to abandon the community they built and invented. As an act of resistance, they set fire to their makeshift dwellings before the heavy equipment moves in for demolition. As one of the houses is consumed by fire and the walls begin to collapse, a sentence appears – “Never give up” – in a video marked by the sound of wind and flames, the dark smoke and the implicit or explicit presence of the French police.
