La vie devant elle, by Manon Loizeau and Elaha Iqbali
This film is the diary of the exile of Elaha, a 14-year-old Afghan girl, who films herself with a small camera to tell her story. Through her story, the film depicts the reality of children growing up on the road, bouncing from place to place to flee conflict in the hope of getting back to a normal life. Directed by Manon Loizeau, who followed Elaha and her family for over a year, the film invites us to reflect on the fate of all children thrown onto the roads of exile. It depicts the wandering, the loneliness, the physical and mental fatigue, but also the incredible resilience of childhood. This children’s road movie is accompanied by Emily Loizeau’s musical compositions.
