Abstract:Après de multiples tentatives pour gagner l'Europe, César, Félou, Érik et Amih se retrouvent aujourd'hui à Bamako, déroutés, incertains, mais tentant malgré tout de s'inventer des manières de rêver encore. Par le biais de la parole, du théâtre, du chant, de la poésie, quelque chose se construit chaque jour sur les ruines du rêve d'une vie meilleure. La parole comme ultime arme de résistance brandie contre tout ce qui participe, au nord comme au sud, à vaincre leur pouvoir de résistance. Ces hommes et ces femmes, dont la guerre économique mondialisée a fait des laissés-pour-compte, n'aspirent qu'à 'vivre leur vie'. Leurs rêves sont ceux de tous et leur monde est le nôtre. C'est ce que leur parole échangée, murmurée, chantée nous dit. Leur parole est politique. After several failed attempts to reach Europe, César, Félou, Érik and Amih find themselves in Bamako, Mali - deported but still driven to pursue their dreams. Their respective winding paths have led them all here, to the edge of the world, one of countless transit cities for thousands of would-be migrants whose hopes for entry into the West - and for a better life - have been dashed. But even as they struggle to survive, they try to find a way to create a space for freedom.Through their words, through poetry, theatre and song, they strive to express the inexpressible, share the unshareable and stand up against the multiple forces that surround them and seek to suppress them. Collateral victims of the global economic crisis, they aspire simply to find a way to live their lives on their own terms. And their words - their conversations, their poems, their songs, their chants, their whispers - speak to this truth. Their words are power. [Résumé extrait de la dvd-video]
