Synopsis


Le Caire, février 2011. Elsayed, Noha, Ahmed sont de jeunes Égyptiens et ils sont en train de faire la révolution. Ils occupent la place Tahrir jour et nuit, ils parlent, crient, chantent avec d’autres milliers d’Égyptiens tout ce qu’ils n’ont pas pu dire à voix haute jusque-là. Les répressions sanguinaires du régime attisent la révolte. "Tahrir" est un film écrit par les visages, les mains, les voix de ceux qui ont vécu ces journées sur la place. C’est une chronique au jour le jour de la révolution, aux côtés de ses protagonistes.

Tënk's film review


"Hors saison" charts how J.-C. Cottet rekindles ties with his parents, having left them suddenly 20 years previously. Now a filmmaker, he uses a highly delicate approach to framing and sound as a way of getting close to them again. He gradually shifts from the standpoint of the character, confined to watching his own homecoming from a distance, to the person filming the action, using the camera to record this rapprochement. After memories of the fear of living and shame of family breakdown, he brings us this wonderful gesture of reconciliation, with cinema as his go-between.
