L’ombre des ancêtres

A documentary film directed by Max HUREAU

The director goes in search of traces of the multiculturalism of ancient Galicia where he discovers traditions and popular songs. They reveal the traumatic history of the region, of this incredible breeding ground of cultures, victim of ethnic cleansing during the Second World War. In the course of his quest, the grip of the United Church and the nationalist ideology emerges, sending these questions of memory back to the present.

In coproduction with Les Films de l’oeil sauvage & TVM Est Parisien.
With the participation of the CNC, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, Procirep/Angoa, MEDIA Développement and SCAM.
