DESTIERROS

Information on the activity

November 13, 2017 to November 15, 2017

As part of RIDM

An immersive journey with South American migrants who walk, ride freight trains and trek through the forest, travelling from shelter to shelter, all with the goal of reaching the U.S. border. Destierros is an unforgettable human odyssey that captures a reality that’s particularly difficult to document without resorting to sensationalism. Using his camera as an active observer, Hubert Caron-Guay (co-director of L’état du monde, RIDM 2012) alternates between purely sensory sequences and revealing testimonials. The approach allows the film to create sufficient distance to capture the violent intensity of interminable, uncertain exile while immortalizing the heartbreaking stories of men and women haunted by the past and aware that this trip is their last chance for a better life.
