The Arrivals

A Feature film by Claudine Bories, Patrice Chagnard

Produced by Les Films d'Ici

Release in France : 07/04/2010

    Synopsis

    Caroline is young, impulsive, quick-tempered. Colette, a little older, is compassionate and disorganized. Families that ha've come from Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Eritrea, and elsewhere face both women when seeking exile in France. Each day more people arrive, with or without passports, with or without luggage, by the planeload or in tarpaulin covered trucks...

    How do we cope with this overflowing tide of distress and need?

    The film recounts this face to face encounter, at times tense and explosive, moving and amusing, where everyone defends their position.
