CINEFILE January 2019 Another Day of Life and Les invisibles
In January, Cinefile takes a closer look at Les invisibles, The Invisible People, an artistic gesture of social realism to foster a sense of resistance against inhumane pragmatism, while a docu-drama Another Day of Life combines highly-colourful and imaginative animation, historicial documents and recent interviews in a tribute to the work of reporter Richard Kapuczinski during the Angolan War.
RFI's Rosslyn Hyams hosts guest directors Louis-Julien Petit and Raul de la Fuente.
Corine Masiero who plays Manu, the manager of the womens' day-time shelter says Les Invisibles, a film with a balance of gravity and humour, is a political film.
“Manu starts out with setting up a humanist centre. When she loses official support, she says, OK, I’m going to take this on my own shoulders. It’s what people around us today are doing to oppose the agro-food heavyweights, or they flout laws to help migrants and refugees. You get to a point where you have to move your arse, no matter what. Julien-Louis Petit’s film tells politicians that, hey, enough, we the ordinary people are doing what we can. Now it’s time you found solutions.”
