The Arrivals

DA_Selection_2010_5

Directed by Claudine Bories and Patrice Chagnard. France 2009, 111 min.

They come every day from Azerbaijan, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Congo and Eritrea. Entire families arrive in Paris, with or without luggage, with or without passports. They come on charter flights, by buses and by ships. Among them are pregnant women, young couples and the elderly. With both fear and hope, they enter the CAFDA, a municipal reception centre for asylum seeking families, in a clash of cultures and chaos. The Arrivals is a sympathetic portrayal of transition that delicately reveals the nuances of contemporary Europe, in contrast to the persecution, political oppression and human misery found on the outside.

Selected by DOK Leipzig.

It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
