COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Des détenus participent à un groupe de lecture aux apparences de jeu de rôle clandestin. Masqués, capuchonnés, tour à tour au fond de l'océan et à l'intérieur de leur prison en Belgique, ils lisent des extraits de littérature de fiction. Les histoires évoquent des naufrages, des procès, des fantômes, entrant en résonance avec les situations vécues par les prisonniers et libérant leur parole. Les échanges ainsi suscités tissent une nouvelle histoire, qui nous incite à repousser les limites de notre perception et de notre imagination.

What happens if you read together with a group of male inmates for two months? The short stories, from South America to the Balkans, are read in parallel at the bottom of the sea and inside a Belgium prison. Reading together binds, divides, leads us into the unknown and upsets the order of things. What can we learn about ourselves by reading fiction with prisoners? Can reading together lead to more constructive dialogues in our society? How much fiction do we need to survive? What does it mean to be imprisoned today? How much of ourselves can we recognize in the inmates’ conversations and personal reflections of the stories? And finally, what are we capable to imagine beyond our ‘personal prisons’.
Permeating Hearts (2018) is an experimental documentary, in which prisoners’ conversations and reflections, which are prompted by the shared reading of fiction literature, are weaved into a new story that asks us to expand the limits of our perception and imagination, and therefore, see, think and feel with multiple eyes.
The film is part of the Reading Cycle, a long-term exploration in the political potential of interpretive communities around shared reading of fiction literature with a series of film works.
