En Seine-Saint-Denis, des années durant, des familles roumaines cherchent des lieux où vivre. Devenus compagnons de route lors de luttes contre les expulsions, nous fabriquons ce film ensemble, comme autant de maisons ouvertes. Cheminant de villages quittés en bidonvilles, squats et cités, l’intimité de leurs récits se confronte à une banlieue en constante mutation. Des grands ensembles jusqu’au Grand Paris, leurs trajectoires retissent une histoire commune, celle de solidarités habitantes refusant la relégation.

"Aux marges d’une banlieue parisienne en grande mutation, quelques familles roumaines cherchent des lieux où vivre. Depuis le village quitté, le bidonville rasé, les maisons occupées, leurs trajectoires retissent une histoire commune, faite de solidarité autant que de relégation. Devenus compagnons de route, nous fabriquons ce film ensemble, comme d’autres espaces habitables."

In Seine-Saint-Denis, in the suburbs of Paris, Romanian families look for places to live over several years. During protests against evictions, we have become fellow travellers. We make this film together, like so many open houses. Moving from abandoned villages to shantytowns, squats and council estates, the intimacy of their stories is confronted with the constantly changing geography of the suburbs. From the high tower blocks to the Greater Paris, their trajectories recreate a common history: a history of solidarity between residents refusing relegation.

On the outskirts of Paris, in a rapidly-changing suburb, a group of Romanian families are searching for a place to live. From their abandoned village, to the demolished slum and occupied houses, their quest weaves together a common history, forged through solidarity and marked by displacement. As we accompany them on their journey, we make this film together as an alternative living space.” Jeremy Gravayat
