SYNOPSIS

 

 

 

Ten Americans travel to France for a week, so that they get an opinion of the country of Human Rights, from the Palais de l’Elysée to the “suburbs”. Two hundred years after Tocqueville, the American group will follow the path of the theorist, in reverse. How do they perceive the disagreements that liven up France? Their meeting with young French, visits of institutions and various discussions in both sides of the Atlantic, will show the situation of France through the eyes of young American leaders. Influenced by non-violent action of Martin Luther King, the “March for Equality and against racism”, called March of “Beurs" by the Medias, took place in Paris thirty years ago. What do they know about it? What is its legacy today? The famous American dream seems impossible in France. What about French dream  ? The film will reveal the opinion of the young generations of French and American about those historical victories.

Coming from different backgrounds, how Janaye, Christopher and Tina are going to live this adventure? Will they be amused, amazed or even puzzled by the French universe? Also, each of them will carry a vision and a specific about the comparison points France / USA .

 

 

WHY MAKE THIS FILM ?

 

 

With The Marches for Freedom, we want to tell the buried story of our eldest, who walked for republican freedom for them and the next generations, still trying to put into practise these values. 

 

In this year of double anniversary of the historical march, I wanted to launch this documentary project which focuses on the point of view of young professionals on both sides of the Atlantic. 

 

 

 

THE PRODUCTION :

 

 

" Understand others, share their vision, this is the vocation of The Marches for Freedom, a committed documentary. I like the impertinence of Rokhaya Diallo and her natural way to broach a subject. I know that with our movie, we can touch many people and launch the debate. Meeting initiates dialogue and creates new ideas, that's the way changes can take place. "
