French Guiana / France 2021, 15 min, French, Hebrew & English subtitles

Charles de Gaulle’s decision to move the French space programme to French Guiana upended the locals’ lives. The forced relocations and accelerated modernization took a heavy toll, as seen in the astonishing archive footage in this film, which coalesces into ostensibly personal memories.

With the support of the Institut Français d’Israël.
