At a drop-in center in France, asylum seekers come for consultations with a mental health support team for vulnerable people.
They come to get their words out, to give voice to their sufferings, to evoke their nightmares and fears, sobbing, with cries of anger.
In between the world of the caregivers and the patients’ world, interpreters play the part of gatekeepers, trying to recreate strength and individuality through language. From session to session, the exiles seek to reclaim their own narrative and sketch out their reconstruction.
In coproduction with CNRS, University Lyon 2, École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and Vinatier Hospital.
