Maisonneuve, à l’école du vivre ensemble 

By Nicolas Wadimoff

In 2016, 10 students from the Collège de Maisonneuve in Quebec left or attempted to leave to join the jihad. In the aftermath of the tragedy, the institution set up a dynamic project called "Vivre ensemble", combining workshops, talks and creative projects. Nicolas Wadimoff and Emmanuelle Walter set their camera up in a turbulent environment: 45% of the students at Maisonneuve come from an immigrant background, and segregated communities have formed between the students, making communication difficult. For one full school year, the filmmakers give a platform to the students, teachers, and facilitators, weaving a film of great subtlety.
