Derniers Jours a Shibati (China)
Shibati, the last old area of Chongqing, the biggest city in China, is about to disappear. Lian, the last witnesses of a world about to disappear. . Zhou Hong, 7 years old, little prince of the streets, and Mrs Xue Lian, 70, godmother of the migrant workers, have to leave their beloved life in this charming neighborhood, to be rehoused in one of the thousands anonymous towers of the faraway suburb. Over the months, the filmmaker befriends the young Zhou Hong and the extraordinary Mrs Xue. The subject evokes the complexity of displacement, and challenges that developing countries face.
Gael de Kerguenec, Director of Alliance Francaise having lived 13 years in China will throw some light on the intricacies of the subject in his conference after the film.
