LA VIE EST AILLEURS

Directed by Elsa Quinette
France, 2011
Documentary

Synopsis

Happiness seems perfect in the 1943 images shot by my grandmother and her relatives. As if being playful and laughing at death were the only way to exorcise the phantom. It is this obsession that I brought with me to Benares, in India, where the living and the dead share the same territory. (E.Q.)
