Ailleurs Partout

Isabelle Ingold

Belgium, 2020, 63 min.

In English, French and Persian with English subtitles.

A computer screen, images from the four corners of the world. In this experimental film, one can cross borders in one-click while another journey’s story reaches in bits, through text messages, chats, phone conversations, and an immigration office’s questionnaire. It’s the journey of Shahin, a 20-year-old Iranian boy who, fleeing his country alone, lands in Greece, then winds his way to England where he claims asylum.

Director's Statement

“In this film, we didn’t hold the camera. Nobody did. But there are images, from all over the world. In this movie, one click is all it takes to cross borders. In this movie, there are two journeys: a journey through the Internet and that of a young Iranian man who fled his country alone. In this movie, this young man transforms himself. And it’s to understand this transformation that we made this film.”
