As part of RIDM

It all starts with a seemingly ordinary wide shot of a town on the outskirts of Paris. Legal testimony is displayed on a black screen, then we return to the same suburb. Inspired by Masao Adachi, whose A.K.A Serial Killer (1969) explored the places in a killer’s life in order to expose the invisible structures that might have exposed him, Eric Baudelaire also looks into a life story as incomprehensible as it is important: that of a young French jihadi who went to fight in Syria. Structured as an enigmatic thriller, this unforgettable investigation invites us to decipher seemingly insignificant words and images, to build a di erent perspective on the world today.
