Federico Francioni | Italy, France | 2021 | 72'
Ines and Rafik are twenty years old and have been working since they were ten. They have recently come to live in the outskirts of Paris, they are of Tunisian descent but grew up in Sicily: their existence is a precarious movement of suspensions, changes and humiliations. At home, one is the mirror of the other; here, time is suspended and the city becomes further away.
