Exiled Migrants

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The movie "Exils" (2004) by the French director Tony Gatlif deals with the experience of social and cultural alienation encountered by a couple of French Algerians who make an adventurous trip from France to Algeria. The film raises questions about the identity crisis of the migrants, at the same time as illustrating the social and economic difficulties involved in the process of migration. The «exile» which, according to Gatlif, frames their experience as migrants, seems to be overcome through the overwhelming, primordial and liberating power of the irrational.
