Notes et avis

  1. Miguel A. Reina's rating of the film Bitter Bread

    [Sheffield/Docs] The camera shows coexistence from the perspective of refugees and their administrators. A look that remains distant, without the usual manichaeism. Interesting is the portrait of administrators trying to be understanding in front of the camera, but at the same time subjecting refugees to mounting debts that mark an unpromising future. Manichaeism is not necessary when the approach is honest.

  2. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Bitter Bread

    Our daily bread: life finds its way in a ramshackle, makeshift Syrian refugee camp in the Bekaa valley, waiting for God to help ("because man certainly won't"), filmed straight-forwardly.
