Carnet de notes à deux voix
76 min.

This film is about an uprising. Not like those we see on television, that we watch and then forget. This film is an invisible and silent uprising that involves a girl and a government minister. One September morning, the minister whispers to the girl, "I wonder if there’s a link between ethnicity and crime." The earth trembles, the girl’s mind is racing. She thinks of all the young people she sees in the streets, she thinks of her brothers, her father. Yes, her father who no longer wants to see her, and the old archival letter from 1964 inviting Moroccans to come to work in Belgium. And of the 1980s, when politicians cried "Down with migrants!" It’s like an earthquake in your birthplace. Leaning on a wall, a boy from nowhere looks at her. Together, they decide to embark on a mission to unearth the history of Belgian immigration from the Maghreb countries. This is a film in several stages.
