Action ! Our series of interviews with the filmmakers of the official selection

Why get involved in politically committed cinema? Why do we choose a subject, how do we deal with it in order to change people's minds? In what ways does documentary or fiction advance justice and create solidarity? The filmmakers of the 2021 selection of the FIFDH reveal the intimate reasons that one day pushed them to take up the camera.
