France : le village, les réfugiés et le photographe.

Leur arrivée a constitué un choc pour le maire et la population, avertis au dernier moment. Au bout de six mois, constatant que les choses se passaient plutôt bien, Jean-François Delort, propriétaire du Château Garonne et le photographe Patrick Willocq ont décidé de montrer cette réalité. Résultat : l’exposition « Mon histoire, c'est l'histoire d'un espoir ». Français et demandeurs d'asile ont posé dans des tableaux photographiques dans lesquels chacun témoigne de son propre parcours et découvre celui de l’autre. Ainsi, grâce à ce projet, des gens que rien ne lie au départ peuvent apprendre à vivre ensemble même quand ils ne l’ont pas choisi.

De Yannick Cador, Jean Will, Benoît Monange - ARTE GEIE – France 2017.

Woodland wonder.

This couple brought the magic of an enchanted forest to a beautiful French château.
