Look away 2018, R: Arthur Levivier, 85 Min, OmeU
Europe, rule of law and welcoming continent? Look Away reports on what is happening in many cities in Europe by taking the example of Calais.
From the demolition of the “jungle” back in October 2016 to the situation one year later, Arthur shared the everyday life with men and women originally from Sudan, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Calais citizens.
Highlighting the difference between real life and official statements, this documentary shows the strategy put in place so the exiles would not want to stay there. With unconventional filming methods and the civic eye, the director managed to get footage of the State harassment, the media stage management, but also the mental strength and the sense of humor of the exiles.
