2021 - Documentary

A father, lurking with a spotting scope together with his wife and son, waits from a distance for a deer to come out of a wooded spot. They look like humans, the observers, and instead are identically, specularly observed, as objects of a study. This field/counter-field between the human and animal world anticipates a long series of suburban and rural paintings on which an investigation is articulated around the REB B, one of the railway lines on rails connecting the centre to the Parisian suburbs.

Alice Diop’s “Nous” was screened at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival and won the Best Film Award in the Encounters section. The talented French documentary filmmaker, known for presenting her work at international festivals such as Karlovy Vary and the BFI Festival in London, and for her win at the Cinéma du Réel in 2016, presented a film at the Berlinale that arouses emotions, surprises and seeks to paint an authentic portrait of the souls of Paris through the stories of those who actually live it.
