| Aren't we all migrants?
I recently saw at the TIFF the world premiere of "une saison en France", most recent opus from Mahamat Saleh Haroun staring Sandrine Bonnaire and Ériq Ebouaney as main characters. It is a must-see movie, but not in a "what an entertaining/technical/star-filled movie" sense, in a "this movie is essential and should be shown at school" sense. This is one of those very rare movies presenting the point of view of the nameless and faceless, those whom you cross everyday, likely judge without knowing a single thing about, their past and current struggles, the horror they faced and face, not just at the hands of armed men, but also because of heartless and soulless systems, focused more on order than people. It's a truly humanist movie, a moving movie. It leaves you changed, likely a somewhat better person, not a small accomplishment, especially in our world where we are so centred on our own personal failures and successes. So please go see and make some noise about this movie, one of the best examples of Cinema meeting Social Commentary.
