Libre / To the Four winds, Michel Toesca (2018)
In the Royal valley located between France and Italy, thousands of migrants try to cross the border each month in search for a better life. Cédric Herrou, a local farmer, has been welcoming migrants at his home since the beginning of the crisis, turning his backyard into a much-needed shelter. With the help of friends and volunteers, he challenges French immigration policies which make impossible for these families to set foot on French ground and seek asylum. Filmed during two years by documentary filmmaker Michel Toesca, this everyday hero will do anything to help them, even risking his own freedom.
Screening in French with English subtitles. 100 minutes.
Competitive debate between 6-7pm & Screening from 7pm.
To mark the screening of Libre, Alliance Francaise is hosting a competitive debate/joutes oratoires in collaboration with the University of Glasgow and the Strathclyde University’s French Departments.
The winners will be announced before the 7pm screening.
This event is free but ticketed. Please register.
The 27th Edition of the French Film Festival will take place throughout November in the United Kingdom.
