A Taste Of Film Debuts From FIDMarseille

babylon

Since the French film festival FID Marseille is nearing, we have prepared, in cooperation with its organizers, a selection of the most original film debuts by contemporary documentary filmmakers.

BABYLON - After the insurrection erupted in Libya in the spring of 2012, more than a million people flocked to neighboring Tunisia in search of a safe haven from the escalating violence. When a massive refugee camp was hastily constructed near the Ras Jdir border checkpoint in Tunisia, a trio of filmmakers carried their cameras in and began filming with no agenda. This on-the-fly chronicle of the camp's installation, operation, and dismantling captures a postmodern Babel complete with a multinational population of displaced folk, a regime of humanitarian aid workers, and international media that broadcasts its “image” to the world.

Directors Rania Rafei and Raed Rafei in their film 74 (The Reconstitution Of A Struggle) show events that took place in 2011: in the midst of the Arab Spring, Rania and Raed Rafei decide to step back and reconsider today’s situation in the light of that period which was pregnant with hope, but also a prelude to civil war. In his film Crazy Quilt, director Lebrun follows two young girls who write to each other. Fifty years later, they still write to each other.

The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
